Gibb, James G., and Julia A. King. "Gender, Activity Areas, and Homelots in the 17th-Century Chesapeake Region." Historical Archaeology 25 (1991): 109-131.
Annotation / Notes: Using archaeological records and spatial analysis from three Southern Maryland tobacco plantation sites, the authors provide an ethnographic look at life for seventeenth-century Maryland colonists in terms of gender and class roles. The article provides a brief overview of the economics of the Chesapeake region, the structure of living arrangements, and the gendered nature of tasks. The evidence suggests how gendered and class-based activities contributed to both household production and accrued wealth. The authors conclude that comparisons between the three sites provide the basis for understanding how household wealth was a direct corollary of the ability to secure a large work force and to develop a high degree of specialization.

Rose, Lou. "Social Attitudes Toward Prohibition: A Calvert County Example." Calvert County Historical Society News 2 (January 1983): 1-2.
Annotation / Notes: Rose argues for the value of using a literary work like Ebenezer Cooke's The Sot Weed Factor for insight into the social attitudes and mores of Maryland at the turn of the seventeenth century. However, the article restricts its attention primarily to Cooke's use of Calvert County for his satire on the legal and judicial systems, even though Cooke did not reside in the county during his Maryland sojourn.
