African Americans, Resistance, and the Spiritual Alteration of the Physical Environment on the Levi Jordan Plantation, Brazoria County, Tx (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 435439] Tara Ruttley. Cynthia Ericson. Kenneth Brown.

In 1986, the University of Houston began conducting archaeological excavations at the Levi-Jordan Plantation in Brazoria County, Tx in an effort to recover contextual material that would reveal information about the enslaved community, sharecroppers, and tenants who lived at the plantation. Established in 1848, the plantation was home to nearly 150 slaves at its pre-civil war peak, and was a major producer of both sugar and cotton. Early excavations of the curer’s cabin and church revealed...

Archaeology and Public Memory at the Lumpkin’s Slave Jail Site (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 434395] Matthew R. Laird.

The discovery and excavation of the Lumpkin’s Slave Jail Site (44HE1053) in Richmond, Virginia, between 2006 and 2009 garnered more media and public attention than any other archaeological project in the city’s history.   Spearheaded by the Richmond City Council’s Slave Trail Commission, the investigations revealed the remarkably well-preserved remains of the slave-trading complex operated by Robert Lumpkin from the 1840s through the fall of Richmond in 1865, and which later served as the site...


The Archaeology of Enslaved Labor: Identifying Work and Domestic Spaces in the South Yard (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 434717] Terry Brock.

While the domestic lives of enslaved families and communities are a critical element of understanding enslaved life, the majority of each day was spent carrying out work for their masters. Recent excavations at Montpelier have begun to examine structures related to the work of James Madison's domestic slaves. These excavations include work on the extant kitchen and two smokehouses, buildings clearly designed for the support of the Montpelier Mansion. However, the proximity of these structures to...

The archaeology of Slavery in Southern Brazil in Global Perspective (2013)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 428352] Lucio Menezes Ferreira.

Slavery in southern Brazilian plantations was a late colonial development, and  was the result of the expansion of industrial relations in Europe and the expansion of capitalism worldwide. On the other hand, social relations in plantations were not only capitalist and linked to the market, but were the result of patriarchal society. The archaeological study of jerked beef plantations has helped to reveal all of these features, as the material culture of the sites is both imported and linked to a...

The "Better sort" and the "Poorer Sort": Wealth Inequalities, Family Formation and the Economy of Energy on British Caribbean Sugar Plantations, 1750-1807 (2013)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 428281] Justin L Roberts.

The occupations held by the enslaved on sugar plantations shaped the formation of enslaved families and communities. There was a hierarchy within slave communities on sugar plantations which drew on the occupations slaves held in the working world. Elite slave family groups emerged on plantations and they tended to hold the most privileged work positions and to pass them down to the next generation. Slaves who held the most privileged occupations had more opportunity to earn money, acquire food...


The Biggest Losers: Gambling and Enslavement in Native North America (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 394865] Catherine Cameron. Lindsay Johansson.

This paper explores an apparently common outcome of gambling among the indigenous inhabitants of North America – the enslavement of individuals who wagered themselves (or their family members) and lost. Archaeologists are becoming increasingly aware that slavery was not a post-contact phenomenon, but existed prehistorically in societies operating at a variety of socio-political scales from bands to states (Cameron 2008, 2011, in prep., Kohler and Turner 2006, Koziol 2012). Most captives were...
