Summary
In this innovative work, Julia King moves nimbly among a variety of sources and disciplinary approaches-archaeological, historical, architectural, literary, and art-historical-to show how places take on, convey, and maintain meanings. Focusing on the beautiful Chesapeake Bay region of Maryland, King looks at the ways in which various groups, from patriots and politicians of the antebellum era to present-day archaeologists and preservationists, have transformed key landscapes into historical, indeed sacred, spaces
