Gaillard Auditorium Project Lecture

Brockington Archaeologist Eric Poplin gave a lecture about the recent archaeological excavations at the Gaillard Auditorium construciton site on May 1, 2013 at the Charleston County Library. Back in February, workers found evidence of human burials in an excavation trench. The City of Charleston contacted Eric to confirm the remains were human and to assemble a plan to find and remove all of the people buried in this portion of the construction site. Eric and the Brockington team removed 37 adults, teenagers, and children believed to have lived in Charleston between 1690 and 1750.  Public interest in this project has been extensive. The lecture gave residents the opportunity to catch up with the latest project news. For more information go to
