Building a chronology for domestic slave sites at The Hermitage. (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: Building a chronology for domestic slave sites at The Hermitage.

Abstract: Nearly three decades of archaeological research at The Hermitage, Andrew Jackson’s plantation just east of Nashville, has made it one of the most thoroughly excavated sites of slavery in North America. Until recently, the vast quantities of recovered artifacts remained unanalyzed. With funding from NEH, The Digital Archaeological Archive of Comparative Slavery has made accessible archaeological data from nine domestic units once home to enslaved laborers. Here we use correspondence analysis of ware-type frequencies, mean ceramic dates, and frequency seriation to provide for the first time an accurate chronological sequence for the occupation of The Hermitage.

Ceramic Variation Among Slave Sites at the Hermitage, TN (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: Ceramic Variation Among Slave Sites at the Hermitage, TN
Author: Lynsey A. Bates
Author: Beatrix Arendt
Author: Leslie Cooper
Abstract: Variation in enslaved people’s access to goods has been interpreted spatially as a result of proximity or distance from the owner’s main house. In this poster, we evaluate these conclusions with data from Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage plantation. Recent analysis by DAACS of the collections excavated from slave quarter assemblages indicates five phases of occupation across the Hermitage property. In light of this fine-grained chronology, we explore the influence of Jackson’s program of housing standardization and the proximity of domestic contexts to the mansion on enslaved people’s access to market goods. Specifically, we examine whether diversity in the decorative techniques and elements on ceramics acquired by enslaved people shifts as a result of these two variables. This detailed temporal and spatial analysis is possible through the specific, attribute-based recording of decoration called for in DAACS protocols.
