Archaeologists excavating the site of a planned highway project in Savannah, Ga., have found a treasure trove of artifacts from what they believe was once the slave quarters on a large plantation. Researchers have found 33,858 artifacts that appear to come from about 1750 until after the end of the Civil War. "These people are pretty anonymous in the historical records. The archaeology may not tell us much about their names, but it will tell us about their lives," said Rita Elliott, one of the archaeologists working the site.
