Archaeological discoveries in Maryland tied to Harriet Tubman revealed by officials.

The article reports on the archaeological excavation of Thompson Farm, a property in Maryland’s Eastern Shore region with historical links to Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad.

The research team, working under the auspices of the Maryland Department of Transportation, discovered artifacts and features suggesting that the farm was a site of refuge and liberation for enslaved people.

The article discusses the significance of the findings, including their potential to shed light on Tubman’s life and work, and notes the involvement of Maryland Governor Wes Moore and others in the excavation efforts.

Maryland leaders on Tuesday revealed artifacts uncovered at the site of the old Thomson Farm in Dorchester County, the birthplace of famed abolitionist Harriet Tubman who led dozens of people to freedom on the Underground Railroad.

At the Harriet Tubman National Underground Railroad Visitor Center, officials said the findings gave clues into who may have lived at the 19th-century home and how they lived.

For Gov. Wes Moore it was an emotional experience.

“Part of the beauty of our journey is that we can be and we should be a society that understands and appreciates our history because it’s the foundation for our future,” Moore said.
