Internship work, UMD Historic Preservation Archaeology Lab

Katherine Calvert's work at the UMD Historic Preservation Archaeology Lab analyzed, documented and labeled 30 years’ worth of artifacts unearthed at the Kippax Plantation site in Hopewell, Virginia. Calvert also spent time mending and vesselizing two ware types of ceramics—Rhenish Stoneware and Staffordshire Slipware, such as the Rhenish chamber pot pictured above—and writing a report outlining her process. “This internship allowed me to expand on my skills while also learning more specialized skills that I can use for my future career.”
