SUMMARY: From 2004 to 2007 archaeological investigations were conducted at the Tucker family residence known in the 17th century as the Overplus House, and in the 18th century as the Grove. During four field seasons more than 30,000 artefacts were recovered from a complex stratigraphic sequence. In an attempt to understand the role played by the people who created, modified and experienced landscape transformations at the site, a landscape archaeology approach was adopted. This examines the interplay between multiple lines of evidence: archaeological and environmental data, documentary sources and oral history. Artefact studies provide substantive results for comparison with other Bermudian sites.
