cover image 60. The Archaeology and History of Horseshoe Lake, Alexander County, Illinois

Brad Koldehoff and Mark J. Wagner, 2002

(xvii + 164 pages, 32 figures, 32 tables. ISBN 0-88104-088-6)

Status: In Print   Price: $18.00   ORDER NOW

This volume synthesizes the prehistoric archaeology, the modern history, and the nineteenth-century archaeology of the Horseshoe Lake area. The prehistoric survey data provide a record of human habitation ranging from prior to 3000 B.C. through the Mississippian period. The historic research and survey data provide information on Euro-American settlement, farming, logging, and goose-hunting activities in the lake area from the mid-nineteenth to the mid-twentieth century.



 59. Searching for a Slave Cemetery in Barbados, West Indies: A Bioarchaeological and Ethnohistorical Investigation*

Jerome S. Handler with Michael D. Conner and Keith P. Jacobi, 1989

(xviii + 125 pages, 10 plates, 15 figures, 7 tables. ISBN 0-88104-071-1)

Status: Out of Print   Price: Call for price  ORDER NOW

A research project attempted to locate slave cemeteries on Barbados to expand findings from Newton Plantation where previous investigations yielded the largest group of slaves yet excavated from any North American context. Work at five sugar plantations, with histories extending deep into the slave period, yielded no evidence of a cemetery. This report examines how and why the plantations were selected, the ethnographic, historical, and archaeological research at each plantation, and possible reasons for the failure to locate a cemetery. Suggestions for future research and wider issues are considered.

Nearly 90% of this 1-ha site was exposed by machine. Seasonal Late Woodland occupations left pit features and considerable debris but few architectural traces. Four year-round Mississippian occupations left evidence of numerous building episodes between ca. A.D. 1100 and 1450. During at least one period, Bridges attained some nodal importance in the local settlement system during which time a central plaza and large community building were maintained. Excavations, analysis, and interpretations are discussed.
