City of Hampton, Virginia
1993 vol. 1: viii + 246 pp. 113 figs.; vol. 2 (specialized studies and inventory): iv + 292 pp. (artifact inventory on microfiche)
The investigation of Sites 44HT38 and 44HT39 involved data recovery on over 1,000 17th-, 18th-, and 19th-century features, including the remains of wells, walkways, posthole complexes, cellars, and building foundations. The research results provide important information for reconstructing early Hampton and understanding its development, including: town formation processes as reflected in the orientation and location of archaeological resources; the evolution of architectural styles along Hampton's waterfront during the early colonial period; the locations of residential, commercial, and industrial areas along Hampton's waterfront; and the general economic status of waterfront residents during the colonial and antebellum periods.
