3324 Dent Pl NW Archaeology Project – Yarrow Mamout site


The Dent Place project is at the property formerly owned by Yarrow Mamout whose portrait hangs in the Peabody Room of the Georgetown Public Library. Intern Mia Carey is a Howard alum, NSF fellow, and doctoral student at the University of Florida. She is the field director and will write her dissertation on the project.

We’ll need to use a mini-backhoe to get under the fill, and remote sensing, to look for evidence of burial shafts (Yarrow was reputedly buried there.)
