Eating In the Side Room

University Press of Florida

In chapter 5, I explore how the simple acts of family members shopping for a cut of pork, fishing along the shores of the Chesapeake Bay, or gathering eggs from the chickens in their backyard was inextricably linked to a broader foodway that linked African Americans living in the Chesapeake. By comparing the Maynard-Burgess assemblages to similar archaeological and historical contexts in the city and the region, I identify the ways that the two families’ food preferences and acquisition strategies reveal the complexities of African American consumption and the implication of such choices in shaping their approach to white Annapolis.
