How can archeology help us better understand and interpret the experiences of both enslaved and free African Americans who worked at Hopewell Furnace? Hopewell Furnace National Historical Park, located in Birdsboro, PA, operated during the 18th and 19th century and became one of the largest iron furnaces to usher in the Industrial Era in the United States. Dr. Amy Fedchenko and Jared Muehlbauer, Archeologists with the National Park Service, will discuss the preliminary results of historic research and archeological excavations, as well as the significance of archeology in the National Park Service, and how archeology can provide new information and perspectives on the lives of African Americans in the past.
