The Wye House is a former Talbot County plantation that was once home to hundreds of slaves, including the abolitionist Frederick Douglass. Archaeologists from the University of Maryland spent years excavating at the Wye House, and what they've learned is helping to fill out the stories of the slaves who lived here on the Eastern Shore.  We'll visit a new exhibit that explores the Wye House's history, and talk with the scholars who worked on that exhibit.
