Barton Site - 18AG3

Barton Village is a multicomponent site in the Potomac Valley floodplain in Alleghany County, Maryland. It is one in a series of sites that extends for over a mile along the North Branch of the Potomac River. This complex of sites contains artifacts ranging from the Paleoindian to Contact periods. Barton Village has been excavated for many years under the direction of Dr. Robert Wall of Towson University with extensive participation from members of the Archeological Society of Maryland. Analysis being conducted at VMNH indicates that the inhabitants of this site were utilizing a wide variety of fauna including fishes, molluscs, reptiles, amphibians, birds, and mammals.

This photo gallery costains a selection of bones, shell, and teeth identified from this assemblage. More photos and cultural context will be added as analysis continues.

We would like to thanks Dr. Art Bogan for assistance identifying some of the fish and shell samples.
