This poster displays the data found from a phase 1 archaeological survey of a mid-19th century plantation kitchen in Salem, Virginia. The survey was conducted in 2014 by students in Dr. Kelley Deetz's archaeology of slavery course at Roanoke college as well as Tom Klatka from Virginia Department of Historic Resources. Data shows a thick kitchen midden and the artifacts highlight plantation life in the Roanoke Valley. This project is on the Roanoke College campus and will develop into a public archaeology site.
