This section of the Plymouth Colony Archive Project presents studies focusing on broader regional and temporal scales than the Plymouth Colony (1620-1691) alone. The first study presented below concerns Jim Deetz and Edwin Dethlefsen's analysis of changes over time in Anglo-American gravestone styles in New England. The next two discuss archaeological evidence found at the Parting Ways site, dating from the 1790s onward, of burial practices consistent with elements of African-American heritage.
