Esme Hofman of the National Basketry Museum in the Netherlands told us that often after original iron hoops were broken, barrels were repaired with rope (pers. comm. 2010). This explanation seems particularly likely for the colony of New Netherland, where iron was scarce. In 1648, for example, when a company windmill on Governors Island was deteriorating, a decision was made to burn it down to retrieve the iron nails and other fixtures because of the scarcity of iron (Van Laer 1974, vol. 4). Archaeologists speculate that the barrel had been converted into a drain or well that Looking for Africans in Seventeenth-Century New Amsterdam 39 had been set in the ground, perhaps at the corner of the drip lines of two walls of a seventeenth-century building (Grossman 1985, 2011).
Especially during the war, captive Africans found opportunities to escape their bondage and in this process likely came to see and share ideas about their role as free men and women in the new nation. While many desired freedom for the slaves, states most commonly used a process of gradual emancipation, which, rather than freeing enslaved people, established dates after which those who would have been born into slavery were to be free. In most cases, however, these nominally free young men and women of color were required to serve slave owners for as many as twentyeight years before being released.
Finally, Meg Gorsline examines a process of forgetting about whiteness in archaeological practice. Highlighting the common fact that sites associated with whites are rarely considered as defined by race, she articulates how archaeologists unwittingly perpetuate aspects of white privilege that communities of color widely acknowledge to be a form of structural racism. She challenges us all to consider the impact of forgetting about race not only in our research but also in how our work may be put to use by our collaborators and the public at large.
