An update on the archaeology of people of African descent on Nantucket! Recent research has focused on artifacts excavated during 2014 fieldwork, relating to Seneca and Thankful Boston, the original occupants of the Boston Higginbotham House, and their descendants. Other research has focused on learning more about the rest of the community of New Guinea, and the diversity of people who were a part of it.
