With a New Introduction by the Author

From the reviews . . .

“This is the first major publication to integrate New York City archaeological data into a broader context . . . . [A]t once a long overdue reference for the student of New York City history while at the same time a point of departure for broader studies of urban development.”
Valerie DeCarlo in American Antiquity

“This work is a building block. It raises important questions and proposes a methodology . . . that make sense for the analysis of archeological data and the creation of historical ethnography.”
Barbara J. Little in Science

“[A]n impressive view of New York’s colonial development oriented toward the interaction between wealth and ethnicity, with insights into urban structure. . . . This book should be of interest to students of cities and urban studies and of New York specifically.”
Stanley South in American Anthropologist

“[A] welcome addition to the impoverished (quantitatively speaking) or deliciously rich (qualitatively speaking) 1980’s monographs written by historical archaeologists. . . . It is an admirable piece of work that builds on 15 years of experience with urban resources.”
Anne Yentsch in Historical Archaeology
