"A Bewildering Variety" : A Material Culture Approach to Pearlware Hollow Forms (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Esther White. Barbara Heath. Eleanor Breen.

DAACS facilitates ceramic analysis at the sherd level with highly developed, exacting protocols for cataloguing attributes such as stylistic elements. This paper seeks to increase the level of systematic rigor applied to the vessel form field.  The authors argue that only through a material culture approach – one that employs multiple available lines of evidence including museum collections, archaeological data, and documentary sources – can vessel form data be made more reliable and replicable...


Cattle In Charleston And South Carolina's Lowcountry (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Martha Zierden. Elizabeth J. Reitz.

When colonists settled Carolina in the late 17th century they encountered a bountiful land.  They immediately planted cattle, that thrived in the pinewoods, canebreaks, and marshes of the lowcountry.  Most of these cattle were raised under free-range conditions.  Three decades of archaeological research in Charleston, South Carolina, show that the flourishing cattle herds influenced the city's economy and diet. Measurements of cattle bones and analysis of recovered horn cores indicate that the...

Little is known about the eighteenth- and nineteenth- centuries at Lamanai, and this ongoing project aims to answer questions regarding how life (residential, industrial, and administrative) was structured. Archaeological data presented here includes the results of recent archaeological excavations (2014) and a study of previously excavated...


"Not Unmindful of the Unfortunate": Giving Voice to the Forgotten Through Archaeology at the Orange Valley Slave Hospital (2019)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Richard Veit. Nicky Kelly.

This is an abstract from the "Health and Inequality in the Archaeological Record" session, at the 2019 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology.   Beginning in the summer of 2016, Monmouth University began a program of archaeological research at the Orange Valley Slave Hospital in Trelawny Parish, Jamaica.  Constructed in 1797, the hospital, now a ruin, dates from the amelioration period that preceded the abolition of the trade in enslaved people and their full emancipation. ...


Public Face and Private Life: Identity Through Ceramics at the Boston-Higginbotham House on Nantucket (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Victoria A Cacchione.

As an African American-Native American family living on Nantucket in the late-18th and early-19th centuries, the household of Seneca Boston and Thankful Micah faced many challenges of race and class. Through their ceramic assemblage it becomes clear that in order to successfully navigate their diverse identities in a predominantly white society the Boston-Micah family adopted both a public and private persona. The presence of European manufactured ceramics such as hand painted and transfer...

Rediscovering the Landscapes of Wingos and Indian Camp: An Archaeological Perspective (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Barbara Heath.

This paper discusses methodologies for tracing the development of domestic and work spaces associated with enslaved people at Poplar Forest and Indian Camp, two plantations located in the Virginia piedmont. The rediscovery of these ephemeral landscapes has been accomplished through a multilayered approach to diverse types of evidence including soil chemistry, artifact distributions, ethnobotanical remains, features, remote sensing and the documentary record. Together, these sources reveal...


Remembering the Raj: Kolkata India's South Park Street Cemetery, Creating and Commemorating Anglo-Indian Society (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Richard Veit.

This paper examines the commemorative iconography of Kolkata India's South Park Street Cemetery.  Established in 1767, the South Park Street Cemetery is the resting place of the leadership of England's colonial efforts in Bengal.  It contains over 1600 monuments and likely many more burials.  These monuments range from enormous masonry pyramids to scaled down Greek and Roman temples, and Hindu and Mughal inspired tombs.  Drawing upon an international commemorative vocabulary combining classical...


Seadogs and Their Parrots: The Reality of Pretty Polly (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Megan C. Anderson.

            Public imagination was long ago ensnared by images of swashbuckling pirates and their winged sidekicks.  Exotic plumes illustrated by Howard Pyle and famous parrots such as Captain Flint have led to many misconceptions about the reality of avian pets on ships and their greater role in the seafaring community.  The transportation of parrots from exotic locales into western culture provides a unique opportunity to study the seamen involved in this exchange and lends insight into how...


Tactics and Strategies of Race and Class: Overseer and Enslaved Spatialities on Virginia Plantations. (2019)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Andrew Wilkins.

This is an abstract from the "Archaeologies of Enslavement" session, at the 2019 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology. This research incorporates overseers into the discussion of how constructed space and social relations informed and shaped one another on colonial and antebellum Virginia plantations. I examine how the organization, use, and meaning of spaces at multiple scales intersected with the historical constructions of race and class to identify meaningful...


"A Taste for Being Well Lodged After Their Decease:" Preliminary Thoughts on Jamaican Cemeteries (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Richard Veit.

This paper provides a brief introduction to Jamaica's 18th and 19th century burial grounds using select examples from Port Royal, Falmouth, Spanish Town, and plantation burial grounds, especially the Orange Valley estate.  Documentary sources relating to burial and commemoration are also examined.  The paper argues that Jamaican gravemarkers clearly reflect the social stratification present in colonial Jamaica, and highlight the great wealth that sugar planting brought to the island.  Jamaican...


The work space of the British planter class, 1770 – 1830 (2013)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Christer Petley.

Focusing on Jamaica, the largest and most prosperous eighteenth-century British sugar colony, this paper will analyse the work space of wealthy Caribbean planters within a wider British-Atlantic context. The letters and probate inventory of Simon Taylor (1738-1813), one of the wealthiest sugar planters of his generation, will provide the main basis for the paper, which will analyse two aspects of the world of the planters and their perceptions of it. First, it will examine where plantation...


Zooarchaeological Insights from Upper Delaware (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only adam heinrich.

Analyses of faunal assemblages dating from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries are able to show how domestic livestock and wild fauna were managed, collected, and consumed by colonial and post-colonial New Castle County, Delaware farmers and their laborers. Animal species, their numbers, and butchery marks on their bones reveal identities, possible coping strategies and/or cuisine in rural Delaware. These faunal remains are also able to provide some data that can allow archaeologists to...
