The 1839 Parker Academy: On the Frontier of Transformative Resistance and Social Justice (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT Peggy Brunache. Sharyn Jones.

This paper highlights our findings of recent excavations and continuing archival research to explore how the school was a site of everyday resistance under a framework of transformative change through education for a multi-racial...


The 1983 Archaeological Investigations at the Ray House, Wilson's Creek National Battlefield, Missouri (1992)

DOCUMENT W.E. Sudderth.

The historic Ray House was an integral part of the Civil War Battle of Wilson's Creek in southwestern Missouri and served as the Confederate field hospital during the conflict. In order to facilitate the restoration of the structure for service as an interpretative facility for the battle, archeological excavations were undertaken during December, 1983. Deposition of refuse, principally under the piered portions of the House, appears to have been random. Furthermore, archeological investigation...

19th Century Entertainments From A Small Plantation In Alexandria, Virginia: Archaeology At Shuter’s Hill (44AX175) (2018)

Citation DOCUMENT Terilee Edwards-Hewitt.

The archaeology of childhood is underrepresented in the archaeological literature. Identifying children’s toys can be complex since many recreational objects, such as Frozen Charlottes, dominos, marbles, harmonicas and mouth harps, were used by both children and adults. Other toys found at this archaeological site are solely associated with children, primarily metal military figures and dolls. Shuter’s Hill, located in Alexandria, Virginia, was a small plantation located near Washington, D.C....

Citation DOCUMENT Stacy J. Lundgren. James Wettstaed.

The shoals of the Oconee River have greatly influenced early American settlement and land use in Georgia, one of the United States’ original thirteen colonies.   Scull Shoals, a major river crossing in what is now Greene County, became the location of a small frontier settlement on the east bank of the Oconee River in the 1790s.  After the turn of the century, industry at the shoals included a water-powered grist mill and Georgia’s first paper mill.  In the following decades, mill operations at...

Citation DOCUMENT Heidi Krofft. Jason Shellenhamer.

The historic farm site of Samuel Dale, an AME minister and leader in the African American community around Middletown, Delaware, was identified and evaluated for the U.S. Route 301 project.  The site was determined eligible, however, it was decided that a traditional data-recovery would not yield the greatest mitigation benefit.  Instead, a historic context detailing the African-American community in St. Georges Hundred from 1770-1940 was prepared to mitigate the impacts to the site.  The...


African Americans in a Dominican Cemetery: Social Boundaries of an Enclave Community (2013)

Their Anglo surnames, Protestantism, and primary use of English have defined this community in relation to the neighboring Dominican and Haitian populations for over 150 years. Using spatial data from the town’s cemetery, I...
