How was the project funded and who participated in this collaboration?
A University of Baltimore faculty research grant afforded the rental of Ground Penetrating Radar and Magnetometer equipment.
What is next for the Project?
Dr. Castanzo, Dr. Shearn, and I will continue our work with the members of the Laurel Cemetery Memorial Task Force. This Task Force has several stated goals including the erection of historical markers, the construction of a retaining wall to protect burials from erosion, and the creation of a web site and other educational materials. We will also continue our research collaboration with the Baltimore African American Historical and Genealogical Society, and we will continue to display our exhibit in venues in and around the city of Baltimore. Lastly, we plan to publish our writing about the project in scholarly venues.
