About This Item

xiv+204 pages with tables, charts, facsimiles, photographs, site drawings, appendix and index. Royal octavo (9 1/2" x 6 1/4") bound in original publisher's green cloth with brown lettering to spine in original pictorial jacket. First edition. Deetz's Flowerdew Hundred is a synopsis of the result of 25 years of archaeological investigations at Flowerdew Hundred, a former plantation on the south side of the James River in Prince George County, Virginia. Throughout the work, Deetz conveys the importance of combining historiography and archaeology to a reach a better understanding of the past. This multidirectional approach is displayed as Deetz examines smoking-pipe stems, Colono-ware pottery and post-in-ground buildings, at Flowerdew. Through examining regional history of the Chesapeake, comparing the Flowerdew archaeological record with that along the eastern seaboard (particularly in regards to icehouses and pits), and looking at the architecture of Salem, South Africa, Deetz is able to construct a contextual history of Flowerdew in the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. For archaeologists, amateurs, and the general public, the book simplistically relays the intertwining of history, archaeology and folk studies, and of course, reveals a glimpse into life on a Virginia plantation. Condition: Near fine in a fine jacket.
