Archaeologists conducting a dig in Patterson Park are holding an open house Saturday to share discoveries with the community.

The project, organized by nonprofit Baltimore Heritage, is exploring an area in the northwest corner of the park, near the Pagoda, to unearth remnants of a War of 1812 camp there.

The archaeologists will hold volunteer training from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. for those interested in participating in the dig, which began Wednesday and runs through May 15. They will be answering questions and showcasing findings from 9 a.m. to noon.
