Author(s): Daniel Elliott

Year: 2007


This report documents the second session of archaeological investigations conducted in the slave quarter and servants' quarters at the North End plantation site, Ossabaw Island, Chatham County, Georgia. This study was conducted by the LAMAR Institute and the Archaeological Services Unit, Historic Preservation Division, Georgia Department of Natural Resources for the Ossabaw Island Foundation. The field study was conducted intermittently from January through October 2006 and this research formed part of the "Save America's Treasures" grant project, funded by the National Park Service, U.S. Department of the Interior. Site 9Ch1062 is a large site that contains 18th,

19th and 20th-century historic components and minor aboriginal components. This archaeological study represents the

second look at many of these areas and serves to establish baseline information for future studies at this site. Readers are referred to Elliott (2005d) for additional background information. The present effort included a detailed examination of the interior of Tabbies 1 and 2, as well as limited exploration outside of Tabby 2. Historical and archaeological data obtained from the previous field season is integrated with the present results to provide a clearer picture of the people and events at Ossabaw Island's North End plantation.
