Architecural documentation of Ash Lawn Highland: examining the evidence (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 434628] Willie Graham.

Jay Winston Johns restored a small house at Ash Lawn-Highland in the 1930s and created a shrine to James Monroe, the assumed builder and occupant. Now a museum house owned and run by the College of William and Mary, it seemed prudent to determine if the house was actually that which Monroe slept in. If not, the consequence would be profound for the College. The building’s dimensions loosely match a wing of the Monroe dwelling described in documents. Despite the association, many features of the...

Cattle Husbandry Practices at Thomas Jefferson's Poplar Forest: the Relationships Between Environment, Economy, and Enslavement (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 435277] Jenn Ogborne.

Cattle were not the primary focus of Thomas Jefferson’s Bedford County plantation, but he did maintain a small herd, divided between the quarter farms that comprised Poplar Forest, for various purposes. These included dairying, some meat production, and manure. Cattle were also driven in small numbers to Monticello, herded by enslaved individuals living at Poplar Forest. In addition to live animals, dairy products were also sent regularly to Monticello. While herding and dairying activities are...

The Discovery of the Monterrey Shipwrecks: A Find by Design (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 434209] Jack Irion. Frank Cantelas. Amy Borgens. James Delgado. Frederick H Hanselmann. Christopher Horrell. Michael L Brennan.

Roughly 200 years ago, three sailing ships met apparently violent ends in the northern Gulf of Mexico nearly 320 kilometers southeast of Galveston, crashing to the bottom over 1300 meters below.  The three ships were very different: one likely a topsail schooner, fast and armed; one a small merchantman, its hold packed with bales of hides; and the third, the largest, empty of cargo, but sheathed in copper and possibly outfitted for a transatlantic voyage.  These three vessels were among the...


The Dyottville Glass Factory: Tracing the Evolution of the Dyottville Glass Works via Interactive 3D Reconstruction (2016)

The Dyottville Glass Works began in the early 19th century and eventually produced a large variety of well-known bottles, flasks and other items that were widely used. Working from a variety of illustrations, photographs and paintings, along with point cloud scans of the original foundations, we have created an interactive platform that lets users...


Examining Lynx and Pride of Baltimore II as Material Culture (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 433937] Nicholas J. Nelson-DeLong.

The study of privateers during the War of 1812 and Baltimore Schooners are directly linked to one another because it was during this time that the swift sailing vessel reached the pinnacle of its design, which provided the means for America’s private navy to be successful. The purpose of this essay is to examine the Baltimore Schooner during the War of 1812 and the replica ships Lynx and Pride of Baltimore II, to better understand maritime material culture both then and now. The replica...


Exploring Racial Formation in Early 19th Century New York City (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 434539] Herbert Seignoret.

This paper explores racial formation in New York City from 1799 to 1863, when the city had the largest free Black population in the North, and ends with the 1863 Draft Riots, which marked a major turning point in the relationship between the city’s Black and Irish communities.  Using the optic of historical archaeology, Diana Wall’s work is critical to this analysis of racial formation in New York City. By unearthing the city's complex racial history while guiding a significant number of...

Lake Champlain’s Steamboat Phoenix II: Mixing New and Traditional Underwater Archaeological Methods for Reconstruction (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 435680] Carolyn Kennedy.

Built in 1820, the passenger sidewheel steamboat Phoenix II ran the length of Lake Champlain for 17 years until the worn-out hull was retired in Shelburne Shipyard. With no known existing ship plans, the sole method of reconstructing the hull is through accurate measurements and documentation of the wreck itself. Since June 2014, archaeological divers from Texas A&M University used traditional recording tools including tape measures, rulers and digital levels to measure the submerged ship’s...


The Life Cycle of a Slave Cabin: Results of the 2014 and 2015 University of Florida Historical Archaeological Field Schools at Bulow Plantation, Flagler County, Florida (2016)

Many Remedies to Choose From: Social Relationships and Healing in an Enslaved Community (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 434950] Matthew C Greer.

When enslaved individuals fell ill, a plethora of cures were available from various sources.  For instance, a planter could have a local doctor treat an enslaved woman, or she could treat herself through the use of medicines she purchased or plants she gathered.  Whatever choice she made, however, did not occur in a vacuum.  Rather, the social connections and relationships that structured her daily life shaped the way in which she sought to heal herself.  So far, unfortunately, the interaction...


The Monterrey Shipwrecks: Current Research Findings (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT [ID: 435062] Frank Cantelas. Amy Borgens. Michael Brennan. James Delgado. Christopher Dostal. Frederick H Hanselmann. Christopher Horrell. Jack Irion.

Research on a cluster of shipwrecks known as Monterrey A, B, and C is providing new information on early 19thcentury regional maritime activity in the Gulf of Mexico. The shipwrecks are nearly 200 miles off the U.S. coast, yet rest within a few miles of each other in water over 1,330 meters deep.  Although the vessels are quite different from one another, their close proximity and shared artifact types suggest they were traveling in consort when a violent event, likely a storm, led to their...
