Welcome to our discovery of the historic landscape at Carroll’s Hundred! As you and your students look through the sherds and documents, keep in mind, they once existed in a world as alive as ours, on a landscape with real people going about their difficult, often back-breaking labor. This amidst an unspoiled natural beauty hard for many of us to imagine — an irony not lost on those who worked in the orchards and at the iron furnace.

Resources for Students
As you browse through our Resources and other Materials, try to keep this in mind: the challenge for historians and anthropologists, as for any detective, is to trust your own innate curiosity and creativity. What connections you may find among bits of information, may not have been noticed by anyone else. Expecting the unexpected is not only exciting, but also keeps our historical radar on alert for striking hidden gold. Enjoy the hunt!
