Irish immigrants may have settled in the areas north of Baltimore because that is where industry - namely, marble and limestone quarrying - that needed unskilled workers was located, said Stephen A. Brighton, a professor of anthropology at the University of Maryland, College Park. Brighton is heading up an archaeological fieldwork team in Baltimore County at the site of an industry-related Irish enclave.

During the famine in Ireland, which began in the mid-1840s, large numbers of Irish immigrants probably came down into Maryland from the ports of New York and Boston, Brighton said. Smaller numbers of Irish immigrants, he said, came into Baltimore and settled in Fells Point, then moved out west along what is now Falls Road.

His interpretations of the material past seek to confront and demythologize issues of immigration to the US such as negative stereotypes and racialization, and other naturalized ideologies sustaining inequality and injustice between (some) immigrant groups and the mainstream native-born public.

Stephen Brighton, an archaeologist at the University of Maryland, College Park, has been examining the massive nineteenth-century Irish migration to the United States.

Between 1845 and 1850, explains Brighton, blighted crops of potatoes left tenant farmers with few options except selling off their livestock to support their families. With no livestock, the farmers ended up destitute and facing a choice between starving in Ireland or migrating to America. Most of the Irish who landed on American shores at that time were desperately poor and uneducated-much like the Mexican migrants of today. "There are a lot of parallels," says Brighton.
