Chapter 3. Theory: An Ethical Epistemology of Publicly Engaged Biocultural Research
Part of the Archaeology of African Burial Ground National Monument, New York project
Author(s): Michael L. Blakey
The approach taken to the organization and interpretation of data from the African
Burial Ground (ABG) involves four main elements. The ways in which these elements
have guided the research are discussed this chapter. These theoretic principles can be
generalized and extended to a broader range of research projects than our study of the
New York African Burial Ground (NYABG).
