I wrote a mock grant for a public history archaeology project. My proposed project was to reevaluate the archaeological collections at Fort Frederick State Park located in Maryland. The Civilian Conservation Corps undertook the initial archaeological efforts at the site and used their findings to reconstruct the French and Indian War Era fort. My grant proposed reevaluating the collections based upon advancements in historical archaeology theory, and using the new findings to reinvigorate the site’s interpretation.
Skills Used/Acquired: Knowledge of historical archaeology methods and theories, public archaeology, and grant writing.
