Overview

Liberated African burial from Rupert's Valley, St Helena

The excavation recovered 325 human skeletons from single-, multiple- and mass graves. Ten pits containing large quantities of disarticulated bone were also excavated. Over one hundred registered individual or group small finds were found in association with the burials. Most of this assemblage has a European origin, but a few items (notably jewellery) may have been owned by the Africans prior to their enslavement.

The report for this site has been produced in two parts: a printed volume published by CBA (Pearson et al. 2011); and a forthcoming digital volume which will be deposited with the ADS in the future. Also held by ADS are supporting data: the primary site record and miscellaneous documents generated during the excavation and post-excavation stages of the project.
