Archaeology in the early African American Community in Easton and excavations at Wye House, near Easton, show the origins of independent black communities whose members sustained themselves with new, African inspired religious traditions, medical traditions, and gardening traditions, all of which can be found through archaeology. This talk by University of Maryland archaeologists shows the connections between African American life on historic plantations and African American life among free people in Easton.
