This is an abstract from the "Archaeologies of Enslavement" session, at the 2019 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology. Thanks to a recent clear cutting approach to eliminating stands of pine-beetle-infested trees at Cannon’s Point Plantation, St. Simons Island, Georgia, an additional slave cabin settlement has been identified. A systematic survey was carried out at the site by the University of Tennessee during the summer of 2018, resulting in the recovery of domestic...

Digitizing Betty’s Hope Plantation, Antigua, West Indies (2013)
Betty’s Hope was a sugar plantation that operated from 1664 through 1944 in Antigua, West Indies. For the majority of that time it was owned by the Codrington family, who were already prominent in the Caribbean due to their success in enhancing the sugar industry in Barbados. This trend continued when they moved to Antigua to take possession of Betty’s Hope in 1671. Since 2007, archaeological investigations have revealed much about the plantation. Current research has turned to digital...
The Dolores Archaeological Program
From 1978 until 1985 the University of Colorado contracted with the Bureau of Reclamation (Contract No. 8-07-40-S0562) to mitigate the adverse impact of a large water impoundment project on the cultural resources in the project area. This complex and evolving long-term mitigation plan known as the Dolores Archaeological Program (DAP) has been called a “truly unique chapter in American archaeology” (Breternitz 1993:118) and was applauded by Lipe (1998:2) for its ability to “increase the power and...
Get out and walk: A reflection on a walking survey conducted in the Fleet River Valley, Kirkcudbrightshire, Dumfries and Galloway Scotland. (2013)
Information technologies such as remote sensing and geographic information systems have and are changing the way we view archaeological sites. Historical archaeologists and more specifically those who work in remote, rural, and/or areas of continued agricultural production are finding some of these technologies invaluable. However, I still believe that a good old walking survey armed with a paper map and compass (and GPS and digital camera) is, for me, the best way to get a handle on what or...
GIS Dataset for Making Better and More Attractive Maps of U.S. Rivers (2016)
Waterways are one of the most common elements of archaeological maps. However, most GIS layers of waterways contain either too many or too few features at a given scale and don’t have any associated data for efficiently including or excluding features. Further, most commonly available rivers datasets contain modern features such as manmade lakes, which are anachronistic for premodern maps. A little known, but freely available dataset known as NHDPlus makes it possible to create better...
Identifying the Landscape Impact of Enclosure using GIS-Aided Map Regression (2013)
Manuscript plans contain a variety of data concerning the landscape changes associated with enclosure. These can be revealed by map regression; a technique which has been used in many previous studies but usually without the aid of GIS. This paper will outline a simple method for the comparison of plans using GIS, in which maps which are directly comparable are created, eliminating the problems of the different scales and conventions used in manuscript plans. This has revealed, among other...
Lithic Sources in Vermont (1977)
A small percentage of the maps reproduced from field data can be found in the series of published DAP reports, but a much larger collection of original material can be accessed via the Anasazi Heritage Center, Colorado. The maps dataset allows users to easily know what maps are available for any provenience. Maps were sequentially numbered within each site and later classified as one of 47 taxa, according to the type of information the map was meant to convey. Documenting the contents of a site...
