Gibb, James G., and Julia A. King. "Gender, Activity Areas, and Homelots in the 17th-Century Chesapeake Region." Historical Archaeology 25 (1991): 109-131.
Annotation / Notes: Using archaeological records and spatial analysis from three Southern Maryland tobacco plantation sites, the authors provide an ethnographic look at life for seventeenth-century Maryland colonists in terms of gender and class roles. The article provides a brief overview of the economics of the Chesapeake region, the structure of living arrangements, and the gendered nature of tasks. The evidence suggests how gendered and class-based activities contributed to both household production and accrued wealth. The authors conclude that comparisons between the three sites provide the basis for understanding how household wealth was a direct corollary of the ability to secure a large work force and to develop a high degree of specialization.

Shackel, Paul A. "Modern Discipline: Its Historical Context in the Colonial Chesapeake." Historical Archaeology 26 (no. 3, 1992): 73-84.
Annotation / Notes: Shackel analyzes dining ware listed in probate records for Annapolis in the eighteenth century to suggest that during times of economic uncertainty the elite purchased products to differentiate itself from the lower classes, while during stable times there was less distinction. The article provides a brief socioeconomic history of the city at the time before presenting an analysis of the development of meaning systems, values, and etiquette attached to dining items. The author makes the case that this kind of examination provides a basis for understanding "the symbolic uses of material culture."
