The Arch Street Project: Visualizing the Historical, Archaeological, and Bioanthropological Evidence from the First Baptist Church of Philadelphia’s Burial Ground

Development of a digital map to present the results of salvage excavations of a historic cemetery in Old City, Philadelphia.

The “Arch Street Project” is a multidisciplinary, multi-institutional effort centered around the disturbance of the First Baptist Church of Philadelphia’s cemetery, also known as LaGrange Place. The aim of the Arch Street Project is two-fold: 1) to maximize the research potential of this assemblage prior to its reinterment in 2023, and 2) to set a new collaborative model of bioanthropological research through full inclusivity, meaning all disciplines are welcome and able to contribute to and inform data gathering and interpretation. This proposal aims to produce a web-based, interactive archaeological site map depicting each individual burial and all its associated data. The map will allow users to filter and query data, view spatial distributions, and generate graphs and charts. Such a tool will greatly aid in the historical, archaeological, and bioanthropological interpretation of the cemetery and its integration into the larger historical narrative of early Philadelphia.
