Archaeology And Gardens At A WWII Japanese American Incarceration Camp In Gila River, Arizona (2016)

Covert Cooking: Food Acquisition, Preparation and Consumption outside of the Granada Relocation Center Mess Halls (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Sabreina E Slaughter. Bonnie Clark.

Historic archaeology is uniquely positioned to provide a fuller understanding of the Japanese diaspora in the United States, and also allows the recordation of methods employed by nearly 120,000 forcibly relocated Japanese Americans to modify and adapt to their newfound surroundings. Using archaeological survey, excavation, oral history data and historic documents, research at the Granada Relocation Center, in southeast Colorado, has provided insight to identity maintenance strategies. Recent...

Marley Brown's investment in and foresight toward environmental and garden archaeology during his tenure at Colonial Williamsburg has created a community of scholarship and professional archaeologists that has adopted these research domains in a more scientific, critical, and publicly-engaged way than before.  Garden and environmental arcaheology are frequently topics of interest to historical archaeologists but have a checkered record of application.  This paper examines how lessons learned,...


In the Garden: Studies in the American Neotropics (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Andrew Wyatt.

Gardens are spaces where households grow plants for food, medicine, and beauty. They provide subsistence as well as economic benefits. However, gardens are more than just economically functional. Gardens are also spaces where families interact and children are socialized, gender and status are negotiated, and ancestral memories are maintained. Archaeologically, soil chemistry, archaeobotany, and spatial analysis have enabled us to identify the locations of gardens, but addressing more...

DOCUMENT Citation Only Benjamin P Ford.

Thomas Jefferson's Academical Village was built, operated and maintained on the labor of enslaved African Americans.

This paper will focus on the landscape of slavery in the nineteenth-century University of...


The Lost Dimension: Pruned Plants in Roman Gardens (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Kathryn Gleason.

This paper focuses on previously unnoticed evidence for the pruning and dwarfing of plants represented in Roman garden paintings, such as the well-known example from the Villa of Livia at Prima Porta. Dozens of other examples of detailed garden scenes are preserved at Pompeii and Herculaneum. Their trompe l'oeil effects created interior garden settings for both living and dining spaces, as well as to extended the perceived extent of actual gardens in exterior courtyards of shops, houses, and...

Regular Irregularity: Archaeological Evidence at Thomas Jefferson’s Poplar Forest for Intersecting Garden Traditions (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Jack Gary.

The geometric structure of 17th through 19th century designed landscapes in Virginia has been well documented archaeologically. The composition of elements in these landscapes shows how their designers manipulated geometric forms, architectural conventions, and standardized measurements to impose order in the garden. By the end of the 18th century fashionable American gardens tended towards irregular picturesque compositions, however the arrangement of individual garden elements to achieve that...
