Setting A Publick Table: Food And Food Service At A Colonial And Early American New Jersey Tavern, Megan E. Springate Oct 2005

Setting A Publick Table: Food And Food Service At A Colonial And Early American New Jersey Tavern, Megan E. Springate

Megan E. Springate

The Blue Ball, a tavern located in Shrewsbury, New Jersey served primarily a local clientele from 1754 through 1814. Excavations on the site of the still-standing structure have revealed a wealth of information regarding the preparation and service of food from the late Colonial through the Early American period. Using documentary and archaeological evidence, this paper will explore the menu and the table settings found at The Blue Ball. The Blue Ball, open to the public as The Allen House, a colonial tavern interpretation, is owned by the Monmouth County Historical Association.

A Bioarchaeological Investigation Of Two Unmarked Graveyards In Bridgetown, Barbados, Crain Aug 2005

A Bioarchaeological Investigation Of Two Unmarked Graveyards In Bridgetown, Barbados, Crain

Master's Theses

In 1996 and 1999 two previously unknown graveyards were discovered in separate sections of Bridgetown, Barbados. Emergency excavations of the sites recovered the skeletal material of at least thirty-two (MNI=32) individuals as well as a number of grave goods. While the artifacts were from the historical period there was continuing speculation as to the ancestry of the individuals interred within these graveyards. During the summer of 2004 the first preliminary osteological analysis of the skeletal material was conducted to identify the biological characteristics, including the ancestral affiliation, of these individuals. The analysis determined that the individuals interred at these ...
