Abstract: The archaeological presence of Africans and African Americans York State is ephemeral at best, especially in upstate New York during the 17th and 18th centuries. Based on the analyses of faunal assemblages from Albany projects, there is growing evidence to suggest that certain modified artifacts, identified in the faunal deposits, were made and used by Africans and African Americans. Bone tools from Fort Orange, and the Winne and Bogart Houses from The DEC Headquarters site, will be discussed. This talk also explores why worked bone objects found in certain contexts may be considered as markers of cultural identity and how they may inform about the lives of Enslaved people.
