    Event Details:Lecture: Archaeology of the War of 1812: From Barney’s Flotilla to Bladensburg. Lisa Kraus, Archaeologist with the Maryland Highway Administration. Dr. Lisa Kraus is an archaeologist with the Maryland State Highway Administration’s (SHA) Cultural Resources Division, where she had worked since 2009. Prior to her work for the State of Maryland, Lisa worked as a professional archaeologist and occasional college instructor for ten years, primarily in the Mid Atlantic. Her work for the bicentennial of the War of 1812 has taken her all over the Chesapeake region in search of battlefields, sunken ships, field hospitals, forts, and anything else that might have played an important role in the events leading up to the Battle of Baltimore in 1814. She also writes and edits a blog for SHA about the archaeology of the War of 1812 http://www.warof1812archaeology.blogspot.com/.
