On January 10, 2020 in Boston, Massachusetts, Historic St. Mary’s City (HSMC) archaeologist Henry M. Miller received the J. C. Harrington Award from the Society for Historical Archaeology. It is the highest international award for the profession of historical archaeology. Named for J. C. “Pinky” Harrington, a founder of the field who conducted early work at Jamestown, Yorktown and other sites for the National Park Service, the award is given for scholarly contributions to the field. Since its initiation in 1981, only 35 people have received this award. Featured in the group photograph are participants and organizers of a paper session held in Henry Miller’s honor at the Historical Archaeology conference earlier this month. (from left): Robert L.
