In 2008, Dr. Stine led an archaeological dig at Blandwood to build on early digs from the 1970s. During this exploration, many interesting finds were uncovered that broaden our understanding of life and material culture at Blandwood. Discoveries involve building materials, early earthenware, buttons and fasteners, and even trading beads. Come and learn about new perspectives of Blandwood gained by examining below-ground resources. Dr. Stine has penned numerous articles on archaeological topics, edited a book entitled Carolina’s Historical Landscapes: Archaeological Perspectives, and worked with the National Park Service on interpretations at the Guilford Battleground National Military Park. 1.5 hours
