Archaeologist Aaron Levinthal Digging Up Ocean City's Culture

Have you ever wondered what lurks beneath those lovely flowers in your garden? Perhaps an odd mound is present on your 10 acre farm.

Aaron Levinthal thinks about that all the time. But he doesn't just wonder; he digs down to discover, but more importantly, to gain a better understanding of those who lived here before us.

His carefully trained eyes see things differently than most of us do. "The coolest thing, really, is that most people don't realize what's under the grass in their own backyard," says Levinthal. "With a little education, you gain a new perspective. 15,000 years of culture is only inches away."

Aaron Levinthal has been spending his summers in Ocean City since he was a teenager. Over the years, he has come to appreciate the character, the culture, and the rich history of the region. What may simply be identified as an arrowhead is, to Levinthal, a reflection of an entire culture which relied on a subsistence strategy which we can only begin to understand.
