  • Oysters struggle to grow in much of the upper Chesapeake Bay today, but thousands of
    archaeological sites full of oyster shells tell us that they were once plentiful.
  • These sites show how Indigenous people fished the Bay for thousands of years, and how the
    relationship between people and the Bay has shifted over the past few centuries.
  • Address how Chesapeake environments and cultures have changed, and investigate a few
    archaeological clues about what we could do differently today.
