The Bronx Times: 'Drake PArk Archeology Workshop'
Students engaged in authentic, hands on archaeological research in collaboration with Jessica S. MacLean, PhD, RPA Archaeologist, resident archaeologist for the Hunts Point Slave Burial Ground (HPSBG) Project housed at PS 48 during spring 2016. Students conducted an inventory of the gravestones in Drake Park. This included investigating geologic concepts (science), documenting each headstone through photographs (literacy, technology and art), mapping their locations (literacy, mathematics, geography, technology), and transcribing information located on the inscriptions (literacy, art).
