Black Female Slave in the Caribbean: An Archaeological Observation on Culture (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Kelsey K Dwyer.

 The relationships between white men and black female slaves resulted in the formation of new ethnic identitites and social structures associated with their mixed-heritage or "mulatto" children. Sources like artwork and ethno-historical accounts of mulatto children in areas of the Caribbean and the role of African female slaves lend unique insights into social dynamics and cultural markers of modern populations. This paper examines the historical narratives and archaeological findings of black...

Identifying "Missing" Slave Cabins On Low Country Georgia Plantations (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Nicholas Honerkamp.

Historical archaeologists are familiar with the tensions that exist between documentary, oral history, and archaeological data. On many coastal Georgia plantations, a clear expression of such tension is seen in the documented presence of large slave populations that lived and worked on plantations and the typically miniscule  number of cabins in which the slaves presumably resided, as indicated by historic maps or from in situ structural remains. Typically this dramatic discrepancy is simply...

The Multivocality of Firearm Materials Among the Captive Africans of the Hume Plantation, Georgetown, South Carolina 1790s-1860s (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Sharon Moses.

This paper will discuss firearm materials and related artifacts found in the slave quarter of the historic Hume Plantation, a rice producer in the South Carolina low country from the late eighteenth century until the Civil War. Due to the historical context of violent outbreaks in the region including a murder at a neighboring plantation, it would seem that firearms and materials that could be used for weaponry would be highly prohibited among the enslaved population. Furthermore, according to...

Slave Foodways at James Madison’s Montpelier A.D. 1810- 1830 (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Chance H. Copperstone. Barnet Pavao-Zuckerman.

Based primarily on similarities in occupation, the enslaved population at Montpelier formed distinct enclaves within the plantation, both spatially and within the hierarchy of the operation of the plantation. While food rations at Montpelier were nominally the same for each of these groups, position within the plantation hierarchy created differing opportunity to supplement those rations through access to both the Madison’s themselves and to the means to acquire wild game. Zooarchaeological...
