Race is not a subject most people associate with archaeological research. Yet because of archaeologistsÆ interest in long time-spans they are perfectly positioned to investigate the "naturalness" of racial designations through time.

Race and the Archaeology of Identity brings together twelve of AmericaÆs most perceptive and talented historical archaeologists. Their focus is on the recent archaeological recordùstretching geographically from Jamaica to northern Michigan; their time frame is from colonial days to the late nineteenth century; and their subjects range from frontier fur traders to Victorian city dwellers. Using textual and archaeological sources, contributors explore such topics as the connections of race to economics, the creation and maintenance of institutionalized poverty, the role of race in structuring and guiding intercultural connections, and the importance of race in creating and defining space.

About the Author:

Charles E. Orser Jr. is distinguished professor of anthropology at Illinois State University and adjunct professor of archaeology with the National University of Ireland, Galway.

Review:

"I have found the papers in this book that effectively deal with how archaeologists think about race and with how we study it to be of great value. I will be using them in graduate seminars and recommending them to students and colleagues."
—Journal of Anthropological Research
