In 1665, the first brick Catholic church in the country was built in St. Mary’s City, Maryland.

It was destroyed and forgotten about. But in the 20th century, archeologists discovered remnants of it.

To this day, they’re still uncovering artifacts important to the Catholic church at that site.

Henry Miller is one of those archeologists who’s been working on excavations at the historic site since 1988 and he joins Currents News to discuss what they’ve found.
