The Quaker Farm that Wasn't: Archaeology at the Smith Farmstead

Author(s): Linda Stine

Year: 2018


During archaeological field work at a North Carolina central Piedmont farmstead (~1870-1940) researchers collected information on numerous landscape features, a standing structure, and remnants of other log buildings. The site contained unusually well-preserved leather goods, metal artifacts, and metal trash piles; however very few ceramic or glass artifacts were discovered in spite of the volume of earth moved and sifted. Oral history, documents, and archaeological evidence will be explored to interpret this site.
