    Students in Maryland Eastern Shore are currently excavating land that is believed to be the oldest and first free black community in the United States. Students from the University of Maryland and Morgan State University are digging up artifacts in a neighborhood called The Hill that may prove to be older than the Treme neighborhood in New Orleans. Until now, Treme has been said to be the oldest black settlement in the country.

    Students have found evidence of nail-making materials, giving proof that a blacksmith worked and lived in the free community. The students are working with the 1790 Census to determine the population and location of freed blacks in Easton, Maryland.
