Thomas, Joseph B., Jr., and Anthony D. Lindauer. "Seeking Herrington: Settlement in a Very Early Maryland Town." Maryland Archeology 34 (September 1998): 11-17.
Annotation / Notes: Herrington, in southern Anne Arundel, was one of many very small towns in Maryland during the Colonial period. These towns generally had no municipal government. To research such communities scholars must rely on governmental records documenting landowners and residents. After Herrington's demise, shortly after 1700, the area remained predominantly agricultural. This resulted in its location remaining largely intact. Thus, it is a promising archeological site for research.

Shackel, Paul A. "Modern Discipline: Its Historical Context in the Colonial Chesapeake." Historical Archaeology 26 (no. 3, 1992): 73-84.
Annotation / Notes: Shackel analyzes dining ware listed in probate records for Annapolis in the eighteenth century to suggest that during times of economic uncertainty the elite purchased products to differentiate itself from the lower classes, while during stable times there was less distinction. The article provides a brief socioeconomic history of the city at the time before presenting an analysis of the development of meaning systems, values, and etiquette attached to dining items. The author makes the case that this kind of examination provides a basis for understanding "the symbolic uses of material culture."
