Archaeology in the Digital Age

There are a few new blogs out there that will be really interesting to follow.  The first highlights new research in to the material culture recovered from excavations of Mount Vernon’s Midden.  This deposit dates from the Lawrence to early-George Washington periods.  The second blog, Transitions in Virginia Slavery, follows work being done by Dr. Barbara Heath and her team from the University of Tennessee on Slave quarters in the Virginia Piedmont.  This site was brought to our attention by our Facebook friends, Mount Vernon’s Mystery Midden.  New media helping us better understand the past.  Enjoy!
