The Life Cycle of a Slave Cabin: Results of the 2014 and 2015 University of Florida Historical Archaeological Field Schools at Bulow Plantation, Flagler County, Florida
Author(s): Mary Elizabeth Ibarrola
Bulow Plantation (8FL7) in Flagler County, Florida, occupied for only fourteen years, provides a narrow window into the life of enslaved African Americans living and working on an East Florida sugar plantation. In the 2014 and 2015 field seasons, the University of Florida conducted excavations focusing on a single domestic slave cabin and the surrounding yard. Results from these excavations will be presented with a particular focus on the life cycle of the cabin, from its construction in 1821 to its destruction by fire in 1836. The application of these results to visitor experiences at the site will also be discussed.
