This class will review the results of the archaeological excavation carried out at the John Brown farm (North Elba, N.Y.) in summer 2016. After a brief introduction to the field of historical archaeology, students will learn about the questions guiding the research carried out at the farm as well as the methods used to help answer those questions. Artifacts recovered during excavation will be described and displayed during class time.
Hadley Kruczek-Aaron, chair of the Department of Anthropology at SUNY Potsdam, has been excavating on historic-period sites throughout the United States and abroad for more than two decades. She specializes in the nineteenth-century Northeast United States and is especially interested in documenting the everyday lives of those left out of our history books, as well as re-examining the lives of those we think we already know.
