DepositUnearthing A Community of Households: Archaeology of the Early 19th-Century Enslaved Community at James Madison’s Montpelier

From 2010-2013, archaeologists at Montpelier uncovered evidence at three different sites of homes for the enslaved community at Montpelier. (This project was partially funded by a three-year NEH Collaborative Research Grant). These homes were abandoned in the 1840s when the Dolley Madison sold Montpelier (including the enslaved individuals that made up this community) with the former homes either being razed or allowed to decay in place, Since that time, these sites have been undisturbed, leaving a veritable treasure trove of evidence for appearance of the homes for various members of the enslaved community. This four-year study allowed us to recover enough evidence for the appearance to reconstruct what the homes of the enslaved domestics, skilled artisans, and field slaves.
