Anna Marguerite McCann and Robert D. Taggart Lectureship in Underwater Archaeology
This endowed lectureship was established in 1985 by Robert D. Taggart in honor of his wife's contributions to the field of underwater archaeology. Anna Marguerite McCann is a pioneering underwater archaeologist with a specialty in ancient harbors and the new robotic technology used in underwater research. Her publication, The Roman Port and Fishery of Cosa: a Center of Ancient Trade, was awarded the James R. Wiseman Book Award of the Archaeological Institute of America in 1989.
The McCann/Taggart Lecturer is chosen by the Underwater Archaeology Committee and annually lectures to four local societies.
The Stafford Civil War Sites in Virginia held its grand opening in April 2013.
The Site Preservation Program is funding the San Bartolo Mural Project thanks to a special gala pledge drive.
