Coffin Handles from the African Burial Ground, New York City

Megan Springate has just published an article in the African Diaspora Archaeology Network, June 2011 Newsletter on identifying a possible British source of the coffin handles excavated at the African Burial Ground in Lower Manhattan. The article also covers coffin handles from a Philadelphia African-American cemetery. The abstract is here, but there is a link to the full article as well.
