Edward González-Tennant

University Press of Florida

In Chapter 4 González-Tennant discusses a novel approach to the archaeological investigation of documents, personal testimony, and material remains that supports an intersectional investigation of the 1923 Rosewood race riot. The use of GIS realizes historical archaeology’s ongoing goal of developing a unique approach to documentary evidence. The combination of property deeds, census records, artifacts, and oral testimony creates a more nuanced picture of Rosewood as a living community with more than a half century of history. The use of these data allows the author to reconstruct historical property ownership for Rosewood for more than fifty years beginning in the 1870s. The resulting GIS, based on historical properties research and other data, supports a diachronic analysis of race, class, gender, and kinship as a form of landscape analysis. The ability to reconstruct the town’s historical landscape results in previously unpublished information about Rosewood’s development and offers intriguing clues regarding its destruction.
