Digital Archaeological Archive of Comparative Slavery

Thomas Jefferson Foundation | Apr 26, 2021

The Digital Archaeological Archive of Comparative Slavery expands understanding of enslaved Africans and their descendants living in the Chesapeake, Carolinas, and Caribbean during the colonial and antebellum eras. Teachers and students can analyze and compare archaeological data from twelve Caribbean sites, including Jamaica’s Mona Estate, and 21 American sites, including Virginia’s Monticello, Montpelier, and Mount Vernon. Instructors will find particular use in the background information, object galleries, maps, and images of various excavation sites.
