10-1-10: The Irish History of Texas, Maryland

September 30, 2010 at 5:07 pm 1 comment

This segment originally aired on March 17, 2010.

Irish immigrants have played a big role in Maryland, from Charles Carroll, the only Catholic to sign the Declaration of Independence, to the sitting governor, Martin O’Malley, who occasionally moonlights in a Celtic rock band.

Last March around Saint Patrick’s Day we talked with Stephen Brighton, a University of Maryland assistant professor of anthropology who was conducting an archaeological dig of a 19th century Irish settlement in Baltimore County. We talked about a book Dr. Brighton published in 2009, Historical Archaeology of the Irish Diaspora, and about his excavations near Cockeysville.
