This paper will reintroduce the audience to the goals and research of the Fort Davis Archaeology Project with a focus on this past summer's (2015) fieldwork. We will be discussing our findings from the the fort's laundress' quarters through both historical and geo- archaeological lenses. We aim to address how archaeological materials associated with daily life at a multi-ethnoracial, western military fort in Fort Davis, Texas, can show how army laundresses acted as cultural brokers, navigating often contentious social and physical landscapes. With their identity as care-takers, military employees, and racialized individuals constantly in flux, these women balanced their relationship with one another, the civilian community, and their military colleagues as a way of redefining and creating new personhoods and identities that were defined by their living on a geographic and cultural boundary.
