Unity College students interviewed Troy residents, sought out old records, and excavated the site of the original settlement to discover the stories–and the truth–about what happened to the African-Americans of rural Waldo County. Chris Marshall is professor of anthropology at Unity College. He researches the ecology and historical archaeology of early Euro-and Afro-American settlers in the Central Maine back-country, with emphasis on land-human interaction and landscape archaeology.
