Lord Ashley Site

Brockington’s work at St. Giles Plantation, also known as the settlement site of Lord Anthony Ashley Cooper, was featured recently in the Post and Courier. While conducting fieldwork to include the site in the Ashley River Historic District, Brockington archaeologists discovered not only an artifact assemblage that is exclusively seventeenth century, but also a large, intact chimney foundation. This discovery is very important for research dealing with the first 20 years of the Carolina colony, and also, the very first trade initiated between the British and Native Americans.
