A Chesapeake Family and Their Slaves: A Study in Historical Archaeology (Nsa) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Analyzing the material remains left by Maryland's colonists in the eighteenth century in conjunction with historical records and works of art, archaeologists have reconstructed the daily life of the aristocratic British Calvert family, whose head was governor of Maryland. In this large household people from different cultures interacted, and English and West African lifestyles merged. Using this fascinating case study, Anne Yentsch illustrates the way in which historical archaeology draws on different disciplines to interpret the past.

Synopsis:

This book is a unique archaeological study of a British aristocratic family in eighteenth century Chesapeake.
