Archaeological Investigations of Early African-American Settlement in Brooklyn, Illinois

  Archaeological Investigations of Early African-American Settlement in Brooklyn, Illinois   

Drs. Terrance Martin and Chris Fennell (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign) attended a meeting on May 31 with Dr. Thomas Emerson and Joseph Galloy (Illinois Transportation Archaeological Research Program) in Brooklyn, Illinois, with Mayor Nathaniel O’Bannon concerning the possibility of conducting an archaeological investigation of Brooklyn modeled after the New Philadelphia National Science Foundation-Research Experiences for Undergraduates project. A book on the early history of the community by Dr. Sundiata Keita Cha-Jua (UIUC), published by the University of Illinois Press in 2000, would provide a foundation for the project.
