Summary

This report is one of three disciplinary reports on the African Burial Ground Project. One report focuses on the skeletal biological analysis of the remains recovered from the site (Blakey and Rankin Hill 2004). A second report focuses on the documentary history, from a Diasporic perspective, of Africans who lived and died in early New York (Medford 2004). The present report, consisting of four volumes, presents the archaeological research on the African Burial Ground. General background on the African Burial Ground project is presented in the beginning of the skeletal biology component report (Blakey and Rankin-Hill 2004). Here we provide background information that is specifically relevant to the excavated site, the archaeological fieldwork undertaken in 1991-92 (its planning, personnel, extent, duration, termination, etc.), and the analysis and disposition of non-skeletal material from the excavation.
