Summary
Provides many fascinating and surprising details at excavations of 18th-century slave quarters on Middleburg Plantation near Charleston; at Monticello, the home of Thomas Jefferson, whose slave holdings seem so irreconcilable with his expressed views on human freedom; and at Colonial Williamsburg, which until recently neglected to show the lives of the slaves, who made up over half the town's population
