Summary
This study employs the tools of archaeology to uncover a new historical perspective on the Underground Railroad. Unlike previous histories, which have focused on frightened fugitive slaves and their benevolent abolitionist accomplices, Cheryl LaRoche focuses instead on free African American communities, the crucial help they provided to individuals fleeing slavery, and the terrain where those flights to freedom occurred
