Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Heath is Director of Archaeology at the Virginia site, which, like Monticello, offers considerable evidence about slave life at the turn of the 19th century. She fleshes out the archaeological framework with census data, letters, memoranda, water colors, and other primary material to describe the slave community's family ties, the agricultural cycle of work, and the sickness and health care they experienced from 1773 when Jefferson inherited the estate to 1812 when he destroyed the slave quarter.
