About this product
- DescriptionPlantation sites, especially those in the southeastern United States, have long dominated the archaeological study of slavery. These antebellum estates, how-ever, are t representative of the range of geographic locations and time periods in which slaving has occurred. The Ar-chaeology of Slavery: A Comparative Ap-proach to Captivity and Coercion, edited by Lydia Wilson Marshall, investigates slavery in diverse settings and offers a broad framework for the interpretation of slaving. Essays cover the potential material representations of slavery, slave own-ers' strategies of coercion and enslaved people's methods of resisting this co-ercion, and the legacies of slavery as confronted by formerly enslaved people and their descendants. Among the peo-ples, sites, and periods examined are a late nineteenth-century Chinese laborer population in Carlin, Nevada; a castle slave habitation at San Domingo and a more elite trading center at nearby Juf-fure in the Gambia; two eighteenth-cen-tury plantations in Dominica; the Hueda Kingdom (Benin) in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries; plantations in Zan-zibar; and three fugitive slave sites on Mauritius-an underground lava tunnel, a mountain, and a karst cave.
