Archaeological Site Examination A Case Study In Urban Archaeology: Roger Williams National Memorial, Rhode Island

Summary

This report is the result of an archeological site

examination conducted by the Public Archaeology Laboratory,

Brown University during Fall 1979 and Spring 1980 at the

Roger Williams National t1emorial, Providence at the request

of the National Park Service. The study parcel is a piece

of urban real estate, covering roughly six urban blocks

that witnessed many of the important events and developments

in Providence's history over the last 300 years. These

factors made the location an ideal site at which to pursue

urban archeological research. The field and analytical

strategies employed were aimed at recovering evidence that

could be used in identifying architectural remains and

artifact deposits that have significant research potential

in terms of land use patterns and chan?e during the parcel's

entire occupational history.
