This collection is referred to as “Archaeological Investigations at Indian Cove (9LC24) 1985.” This name is consistent throughout the finding aid, the file folders, and the box labels. The extent of this collection is one and a half (1.5) linear inches. The documents date from 1985 to 2011. The investigation occurred in 1985, which explains the date of the project name. The range of dates includes further correspondence regarding the collection inventory and transfer. The documents were...


Archaeologically Assembling The Full Picture of the Political-Economy of Late 18th Century Colonial Trade Relations on the Margins of Empire from the Bisc-2 Shipwreck Site. (2013)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Stephen Lubkemann. Charles Lawson. Justine Benanty. Tara Van Niekerk. David Morgan. Sean Reid. John Bright.

This paper will provide provisional conclusions drawn from the analysis of all our data within a particular methodological framework while identifying critical gaps that remain.  We will first discuss how the BISC-2 site may provide new insights into the political-economy of trade at the permeable boarder of British and Spanish spheres of competing influence; and into the relationship between imperial centers and their often non-compliant peripheries.  Finally, BISC-2 suggests a rethinking of...


Archeological Investigations at 9LC24, Lincoln County, Georgia, Archaeological Investigations at Indian Cove (9LC24) 1985 (1985)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Thomas H. Gresham.

This report presents the results of archeological data recovery at 9Lc24, Lincoln County, Georgia, a multi-component site on Clarks Hill Lake characterized by seven rock piles. Complete excavation of six of the rock piles, testing with small test units, a 5 by 5 m block excavation, and extensive soil chemistry testing were employed to fully understand the function and culture chronology of the site. Excavation results showed that the rock piles were of historic origin and represented farmers'...


The BISC 2 Cargo (Part I)--Contributions and Questions from Ceramics Analysis: Late 18th Century Sequencing and Colonial Trade patterns (2013)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Chuck Lawson. Stephen Lubkemann. David Morgan. Justine Benanty. Ken Wild. Jaco Boshoff. Sean Reid.

The BISC-2 site uniquely contains thousands of fragments of late 18th century English ceramics dating from the period of transition from stone-glazed salt ware to cream ware, including hundreds of examples of both of these manufactured types that share decorative patterning. The fact that this assemblage (arguably one of the largest of late 18th century ceramics located to date in North America) was created through a wrecking event that occurred quite literally as a single instance in time...


The BISC 2 Cargo Part II--Prestige Cargo or Evidence of Colonial Dumping? An Exploration of What Key Items in BISC 2's Cargo of Ceramics May say About center/periphery trade relations in the Late North American British Empire (2013)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Justine Benanty. Charles Lawson. Stephen Lubkemann. Ken Wild.

This paper will focus on what a set of very specific items documented in the BISC-2 cargo may indicate about relations between the Bristih imperial center and amongst various levels of its periphery--including Jamaica and North America--during the last third of the 18th century. We will focus in particular on: 1) a coloration pattern that is ubiquitous on the site that has been documented as having a limited production life and as destined for dumping in a colobial market considered less...

Cats and Dogs in Late 18th Century Philadelphia Society (2019)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Marie Pipes.

This is an abstract from the "Zooarchaeology, Faunal, and Foodways Studies" session, at the 2019 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology. Cats and dogs have lived with humans for thousands of years. Our relationship with both species evolved and changed over time as their social importance in Euromerican culture shifted from being working animals to status symbols, especially during the 18th century. Unlike other domesticated species, their remains tend to be poorly...


Geophysical Investigation at Fort Motte: Delineating the Fort and Searching for the Sap. (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Jonathan Leader. Steven D Smith. James B. Legg.

Investigation of the Revolutionary War site of Fort Motte (38CL1) has been ongoing since 2004. In the 2015 field season volunteers and the summer archaeological field school assisted the work by analyzing 9200 sq meters of the roughly 13 acres of the primary battlefield site by dual gradiometer. Eventually the entire 13 acres will be analyzed. This paper presents the findings to date with special attention to the fortification, plantation house and sap.


"It is promised to them:" Loyalist Refugees’ Adaptation in the Exumas Cays, Bahamas (1784–1810) (2013)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Douglas Pippin.

The stone foundation ruins on Warderick Wells––an island in the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park, Bahamas––have long been associated with refugee American Loyalists in the Bahamas after the American Revolution. Local oral tradition maintains that the Davis family occupied the property in the last quarter of the 18th century. Little historical evidence remains, however, to confirm the family association or the site’s connection to the Loyalists. The Exuma Cays were among several locations in the...


National Register of Historic Places Registration Form - New Boston Air Force Station Archaeological District (2004)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Robert C. Whetsell.

The New Boston Air Force Station (NBAFS) Archaeological District is a time capsule of New Hampshire and New England history. The 2,826-acre District contains a diverse and wide-ranging array of archaeological sites and structures representative of human occupation of the region beginning with the Archaic Period (10,000-3,000 B.P.) and ending with the use of the land as a bombing range during World War II and the early Cold War periods of U.S. history. The district is like no other archaeological...

Starting Over After Being Taken Away: Enslaved Women, Forced Relocation, and Sexual Relationships in Antebellum Virginia (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Matthew C. Greer.

Despite decades of archaeological research on enslaved communities, few studies have directly addressed the impact of the forced movement of Black women and men between sites of slavery.  Such relocations could dramatically alter the lives of enslaved individuals by removing them from their existing social networks and inserting them into a new community where such connections would have to be created anew.  While ongoing excavations at Belle Grove Plantation (Fredrick County, Virginia) are...


Trade and Mobility in the Late Eighteenth-Century River World of the Western Great Lakes: the Case of Réaume’s Leaf River Post (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Amelie Allard.

This paper examines the lived experiences of French Canadian fur traders in the late eighteenth-century western Great Lakes region. Even as they labored under – sometimes actively resisted - the Anglo-Scot masters of the trade, a life of travel away from colonial centers provided an arena for voyageurs to enact and reproduce distinct sets of fur trade practices through the transmission of knowledge on the spot, as well as create a place for themselves at the intersection of British colonial...


Why BISC-2’s Brick Ballast May Have the Most Interesting  (Archaeological) Things to Say about Imperial Marginality (2013)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Sean H Reid. Stephen Lubkemann.

In this paper we will analyze the documented ballast of the BISC-2 site focusing on three primary—and interlinked-- questions: 1-the archaeological evidence that this was a case of ballast as cargo; 2-the mounting empirical evidence that suggests that these bricks may be "ladrillos" –a form manufactured in Spanish (rather than British)North America; 3-and the potential implications of finding this type of likely less documented  cargo on a ship that was clearly carrying a large cargo of English...
