Schuyler Flatts Burial Ground

The Schuyler Flatts Burial Ground is an unmarked 18th century African cemetery that was used by Africans enslaved by the prominent colonial Albany Schuyler family who owned the Flatts for many generations. Bioarchaeological analysis has focused on answering questions about their identity and origins as well as diet, disease, trauma, and activity patterns, particularly as compared with their urban counterparts from the African Burial Ground in New York City.
