Research Projects

The University of Maryland is located in the Baltimore-Washington corridor, one of the nation's most dynamic regions for historical research. 

The Department of History at the University of Maryland is home to  a number of editing and database projects directly relevant to historical research including the Freedmen and Southern Society Project;  Enslaved: Peoples of the Historical Slave Trade (Enslaved.org); and the Slavery, Law, and Politics Project (SLAPP).

A number of major research projects undertaken by and in partnership with the Department of History have been completed including the Combined Caesarea Expeditions, an amphibious research project that joins excavation of the terrestrial remains of Caesarea Maritima with an underwater investigation of the site's ancient harbor. Kenneth Holum was a co-director of the project.
