Summary

GSA, Northeast and Caribbean Region, sought assistance from the US Army Corps of Engineers, St. Louis District’s Mandatory Center of Expertise for the Curation and Management of Archaeological Collections (MCX) to assist them with the long-term curation of the associated records generated from investigations conducted at the African Burial Ground (ABG) in Manhattan, New York City. During the preliminary phases for the construction of a new building, archaeologists discovered a large historic cemetery of African Americans dating to the seventeeth and eighteenth centuries. Once the the African Burial Ground Archives Project Feasibility Study and Condition Assessment for General Services Administration was completed, a reasonably accurate estimate of the volume of the final African Burial Ground Collection could be made.
