Working Plantations on Sapelo Island: High Point Versus Chocolate

Part of the Sapelo Island project

Author(s): Nicholas Honerkamp

Year: 2008


Back-to-back archaeological surveys on Sapelo Island, Georgia by the University of Tennessee at

Chattanooga have concentrated on two sites: a substantial, intensively occupied plantation dating primarily to the first half of the 19th century (Chocolate) and an earlier, sporadically occupied operation that included a short-lived French component (High Point). This paper compares the archaeological manifestations of slave occupations at both sites and identifies distinct material contrasts between the slave assemblages. It is primarily in terms of architectural and ceramic characteristics that different living conditions for the two groups are most clearly indicated.
