Slavery and Archaeology: A Look at the Archaeology of Slavery in America with Holly Norton

Just as we leave behind Black History Month, we cannot relegate #BlackHistory and #BlackFutures solely to the month of February. Therefore, in this episode we honor a small bit of black history through a closer look at the archaeology of slavery with archaeologist Holly Norton. We take a lens to Colonoware pottery of the South and other examples across the Americas, and discuss how we make interpretations around this important topic. Lastly, we remind ourselves that we must reflect on the biases and stereotypes we project into the past.
