Summary
In 2011, construction workers uncovered the remains of a woman in an abandoned lot in Queens, New York. The body belonged to an African American woman who died in the first half of the 19th century. Forensic archaeologist Scott Warnasch and a team of historians and scientists investigate this woman' story, revealing a picture of what life was like for free African American people in the North.
