Start 2020 with Maryland History at Lecture Series
Start a new year by going way back into Maryland’s past!
The Calvert Marine Museum will host a series of lectures by Mark Wilkins titled “Maryland in the Age of Sail.” The next lecture will take place Thursday, Jan. 9, from 7 to 8 p.m. at the museum, which is located at 14200 Solomons Island Road in Solomons.
In this eight-week lecture series, Wilkins will explore topics ranging from European influence to the tobacco trade to the Civil War on the Chesapeake and more, through the 20th century.
The Jan. 9 lecture will explore the need for European nations to explore the oceans and seas of the world. Due to shrinking internal commerce, sea traders ventured far and wide to import new goods to their native lands — infusing their economies with exotic goods from faraway places.
Lectures are free and open to the public.
