Description: Discusses the potential of archaeology to shed light on the daily lives of nineteenth-and twentieth-century New Yorkers. Chapters provide overviews of the current status of nineteenth-and early-twentieth century archaeology in New York, make suggestions for future research directions, and present recent case studies on specific aspects of the archaeological record (sheet middens, landscape modifications, family cemeteries, and architecture) and classes of sites (farmteads, boarding houses, early freed black settlements). This volume demonstrates the potential of nineteenth-and early twentieth-century domestic archaeology to shed light on a time of rapid change that set the stage for later developments in the twentieth-century New York and our own lives.
