The lives of African Americans prior to the 20th century are poorly documented in the historic record and frequently biased. In addition, the contributions of enslaved, indentured, and free African Americans are mostly missing from our history books and museum exhibits. Archaeology is a method that can be used to help fill this gap in our understanding of past cultural behavior in Pennsylvania. This year’s Workshops in Archaeology will feature an overview of several African American archaeological investigations and community archaeology projects in Pennsylvania and the mid-Atlantic.
