Archaeological Work at Harbison Crossroads Makes Local News

You may remember a recent blog post discussing an archaeological investigation in East Tennessee in search of Reynold’s Station. Although the investigation determined it was not the location of Reynold’s Station, there was still an abundance of information that could be obtained from the discovered site. After the initial investigation, it was determined that the site had further potential to yield information on early Euro-American and enslaved African-American inhabitants of East Tennessee and Knox County, and on the material culture of the enslaved people and the changes that took place to the landscape through time.

Recently members from CRA, along with archaeologists from the Tennessee Department of Transportation, were part of a local news story discussing the findings and on-going archaeological investigations. You can read the news story and watch the video clip of the site here.
