Army Wives and Kids: Civilian Lives in Military Context at the Augusta Arsenal (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Jennifer M Trunzo. Maggie Needham.

Between 1826 and 1955, the Augusta Arsenal operated on the land currently occupied by the Summerville Campus of Augusta University. As a military site, it is easy to conceptualize the Arsenal as a male gendered place and associate it almost exclusively with war-related manufacturing activities. However, most of the artifacts recovered from the Arsenal directly address the domestic lives of the people who lived there. Additionally, many artifacts from the Arsenal speak to presence of the often...

Charlottes, Commies, and China Dishes: The Abundance of Children’s Toys from The Hermitage (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Colleen Betti.

The lives of children enslaved on American plantations are poorly documented and often overlooked in the archaeological record. Excavations at the Hermitage have produced a large number of toys that can provide valuable insights into the lives of this understudied population. Over half of the toys in the DAACS database are from the Hermitage. This paper looks to compare the toys from the Hermitage to those from the other North American sites in DAACS to better understand why the Hermitage has...


Children and the ceramic industry in medieval England (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Kelly Green.

This paper discusses the role of children in the ceramic industry in medieval England, using the work of medieval ceramics specialists Maureen Mellor and Stephen Moorhouse as a starting point from which new evidence relating to this subject can be assessed. Children’s involvement in pottery production manifests itself in a variety of ways, including fingerprints on ceramic sherds, decorative qualities on pots and tiles, and documentary references. Similar studies relating to pottery production...


The Children's Frontier: The Relationship Between the American Frontier Perspective and the Material Culture of Children (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Delfin A. Weis.

The cultural perspective that developed out of the American West during the expansionary period (1850-1900) is viewed as the product of adults. Characteristics of independence, self-reliance, and gender-role relaxation defined the western individual and group. While the physical and social frontier impacted the adult, their cultural perspective was closely linked to the eastern United States. In contrast, children of the frontier matured in an environment that was at odds with eastern...

The emotive agency of infants and children in early Anglo-Saxon inhumation cemeteries (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Duncan Sayer.

Infant and child graves have often received ambiguous interpretation when found in archaeological context. In 2012 a child’s grave was excavated in the sixth century cemetery at Oakington Cambridgeshire. Sometime after deposition its feet were truncated by a large adult grave, however, the child’s bones were repositioned on its legs, an action which impels continuing agency influencing the gravediggers long after the child had died and been buried. Child mortality was high in many past...


Finding the Children in Communities of Labor – Initial Results from the Coal Heritage Archaeology Project (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only R. Carl DeMuth.

This paper reviews recent archaeological research at Tams, WV – a former coal company town – which revealed a significant number of children's toys such as marbles and dolls/figurines. Artifacts such as these can offer important insights into the lives of children in company towns, an aspect that is often overlooked in labor archaeology. In terms of community involvement, these artifacts are both important as well as interesting. Most former residents interested in the project only lived in...

DOCUMENT Citation Only Sanna Lipkin.

This is an abstract from the "Burial, Space, and Memory of Unusual Death" session, at the 2019 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology. Several cemeteries were established during the 19th century at Buffalo, NY. Today many of these cemeteries do not exist. Throughout decades human remains have been revealed by construction work, but about 1200 burials and memorial stones from different cemeteries were moved to new Forest Lawn cemetery after its establishment in 1850. These...


Friend or Foe: Constructing the National Identity of Japanese American Children in Amache, a WWII Internment Center (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only April Kamp-Whittaker.

During World War II thousands of Japanese American families were relocated from the west coast to the interior of the United States. Internment along with rampant racism and cultural stereotyping focused public attention on individuals of Japanese descent in this county and raised questions about identity and national allegiance. Research from Amache, the internment camp located in Colorado, is used to explore issues of children’s national identity and broader understanding of the war. ...


Growing up at Coalwood: An Analysis of Children's Material Culture at Coalwood Lumber Camp (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Maria Smith.

Coalwood was a cordwood lumber camp operated by Cleveland Cliffs Iron Company in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula at the turn of the twentieth century. Workers were encouraged to live there with their families to blunt labor tension and save the costs of boarding houses and dining facilities. Many children lived in the camp; in 1910 there were at least 43 children at Coalwood. Most workers were Finnish immigrants and all but five children were either Finnish immigrants or the children of Finnish...


"I Feel Like Taking Their Heads Off": Children in Fort Boise (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Nathan J. May.

The archaeology of children has been an increasingly visible part of historical scholarship in recent years. However, there are places where they are still not visible. Work by the University of Idaho on the former grounds of Fort Boise (in Boise, ID) has provided an opportunity to explore the archaeology of children in a most unexpected place - a military fort. Excavations in multiple contexts on the former grounds of the fort have resulted in the recovery of many children's items dating from...

Limbus Infantum: Shrouds, Safety Pins, and the Materiality of Personhood in Juvenile Burials at the Milwaukee County Poor Farm Cemetery (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Brianne E Charles. Eric Burant. Patricia B. Richards.

Of the over 2000 individuals recovered from the Milwaukee County Poor Farm Cemetery (MCPFC), approximately one-third are juveniles under the age of 20. Age categories for the MCIG juveniles were established using a variety of dental, osteometric and nonosteometric methods. The example of juvenile lot 10007, (dental age assessment 5 postnatal months, osteometric age 39 fetal weeks) recovered with diaper fabric, safety pins, and a small angel pin, suggests that a more refined look at juvenile age...


Making medieval toys: Using experimental archaeology to engage students in academic enquiry (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Erin Halstad McGuire.

The early medieval period is often thought of as a grim, violent era, characterized by conflict and social inequality. It is typically dominated by adult male narratives, albeit with a growing body of work centred on women’s lives. Children have remained in the shadows, sometimes seen but rarely heard. There is limited archaeological evidence for children’s activities and even less appears in textual sources from the Middle Ages. This paper explores the ways in which medieval children’s toys and...


Natural Child at Nurse: migrant mothers and their children in New York’s almshouse system. (2020)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Katherine Fennelly.

This is an abstract from the session entitled "Women’s Work: Archaeology and Mothering" , at the 2020 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology. Throughout the nineteenth century the city of New York expanded significantly, its growth fed by large numbers of migrant groups. Many of these groups came from the British Isles and northern Europe, where established systems of charitable institutional care were in place. Consequently, migrants were familiar with the types of...


Out on the Porch: Evidence of Play on Idaho’s Frontier (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Amanda C Bielmann. Mairee MacInnes.

The ideal child of the 19th century was seen and not heard, and today the lives of these children are often overlooked in the documentation of the past. They did, however, have a lasting impact on their surroundings in the American West.  Recent excavations of a surgeon’s quarters at Fort Boise reveal insights into some of the earliest evidence of play in the state of Idaho. Artifacts unearthed from below the home's porch include toys and educational materials dating to the turn of the twentieth...
