Proposal for Conducting an Archaeological Survey at Chocolate Plantation, Sapelo Island, Georgia

Part of the Sapelo Island project

Author(s): Nicholas Honerkamp

Year: 2006


Chocolate Plantation on Sapelo Island has been the subject of several archaeological studies, beginning with a 1974 archaeological field school directed by West Georgia College's Dr. Lewis Larson (Juengst 1980), and most recently in the form of a remote sensing exercise by the University of Mississippi (Simmons 2004). An accurate site map ofthe plantation and detailed drawings oftabby structures, including the location oftwenty structures and substructures along with tree lines, site elevation and datum information, were produced by Ray Crook ofthe University of West Georgia. The site map was subsequently used as a base map for the later study, which tested the viability of several geophysical survey techniques at Chocolate. While these efforts have produced valuable information about the site, a systematic survey of the site's resources has yet to be carried out. Such a survey, to be undertaken by the Jeffrey L. Brown Institute of Archaeology, University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, is the subject ofthis proposal to the Division ofNatural Resources, Historic Preservation Division (DNR).
