The University of Mississippi will host a public archaeology day at Rowan Oak on Saturday November 10. Archaeologists and students will discuss recent archaeological fieldwork to search for antebellum deposits from ca. 1848-1865 when the property was owned by Robert Sheegog, an early Oxford settler, supporter of the university, and slaveholder. These investigations especially have focused on identifying the places where enslaved people lived and worked on the Sheegog estate.

 

This event is free and open to the public. Come by any time between 10am and 3pm to learn about the fieldwork, the findings of UM’s Slavery Research Group, and ask questions.
