New York African Burial Ground Archaeology Final Report, Volume 1. Chapter 13. Beads and Other Adornment
Part of the Archaeology of African Burial Ground National Monument, New York project
In this chapter we take the measure of the beads and other personal adornment recovered in association with skeletal remains. We begin with a profile of the burials with adornment, and then consider where and how the items were acquired. Each of the assemblages inventoried in the chapter—beads, cowries, rings and other jewelry—is then described in detail. Information is provided about recovery, condition and treatment, chain of custody, methods of analysis, and where relevant, descriptive typologies and findings about manufacture, origin, and age.
