Matthew J. Kirk, Principal Investigator/Cultural Resource Specialist, Hartgen Archeological Associates
Recent excavations and research revealed outbuildings on Ten Broeck land likely used as summer kitchesn and/or slave quarters. With a unique mix of archeology and history, these findings provide insight into the slave/master relationships shortly before abolition. They suggest we reconsider our modern concepts of slavery in the north at the end of the eighteenth century.
