This is an abstract from the "SAA 2019: General Sessions" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.
Robert Davidson's Holly Bend, an early 19th century plantation located in the Piedmont region of North Carolina, was documented in the 1850 Mecklenburg County census as having 109 slaves. The plantation continues to be the focus of excavations and research projects over the past several years. Each year, excavation during these projects produce numerous ceramic sherds which vary based on form, paste, surface treatment, and decoration, piecing together a timeline of ceramic history on the plantation.
