Cultural Resource Management

In addition to my Ph.D., which included a significant amount of architectural fieldwork, work with material culture, and some archaeological fieldwork and analysis, I have a Certificate in Historical Archaeology and Cultural Resource Management (CRM) from the Department of Anthropology at the University of South Carolina. This page is dedicated to past and ongoing cultural resource management projects with which I have been involved.

Camp Asylum

Camp Asylum was excavated by a team of archaeologists and students from the South Carolina Institute of Archaeology and Anthropology (SCIAA) at the University of South Carolina in 2014. Located on the grounds of the South Carolina State Hospital, it housed nearly 1,300 Union prisoners of war during the American Civil War.

Graniteville Archaeological Project (GAP)

Graniteville, SC was founded by William Gregg in 1845 around a textile mill. The town included 90 houses built for workers, boarding houses, company stores, two churches, and a school for the children of mill workers. The town took its name from the blue granite used to construct the mill buildings.
