(p.189) 10 Founding Families: Reflections on the Archaeology of Poplar Forest
Jefferson's Poplar Forest

Stephen A. Mrozowski

University Press of Florida

Influenced by the works of Lefebvre, Soja, Harvey, Zukin, and Delle, the author of this chapter presents a concept of space that is multidimensional and contains elements of numerous cultures and histories, including those of the team of researchers, to interpret Poplar Forest. He uses this concept to highlight changes over time to the landscape, to the demography of the enslaved community, and to the organization and furnishings of diverse households. The chapter concludes with a consideration of the importance of seeing plantations as places of shared histories and the strength of historical archaeology in contributing to such a vision.
