The Sporting Life: Archaeological Evidence of Pensacola’s Red Light District Customers

Author(s): Jackie L. Rodgers

Year: 2015

Summary

Archaeological studies have been conducted upon red light districts across the United States. While these studies have yielded great insight into the lives of prostitutes, relatively little has been recovered from their customers. Three collections from excavations conducted in 1975 and 2000 upon Pensacola, Florida’s red light district have also been studied, with a surprising number of artifacts associated with customers identified. This paper will provide an in-depth analysis of red light district customers through the items they left behind.
