Archaeological Investigations at Site 38JA272 Jasper County, South Carolina

Author(s): Eric D. Sipes; Eric C. Poplin

Year: 2004


In July 2003, Brockington and Associates, Inc., conducted excavations in the portion of 38JA272 that will be affected by the construction of Phase I of the South Carolina Pipeline Company’s (SCPC) 82-mile South System Loop Natural Gas Pipeline near Ridgeland in Jasper County, South Carolina. Archaeological monitoring of construction activities at 38JA272 was conducted in November 2003. Archaeological 38JA272 is a possible Civil War rifle trench with a surrounding surface and subsurface Pre-Contact and Post-Contact artifact scatter; however, no Civil War related materials were discovered during either phase of this investigation. The relationship of this site to the nearby Honey Hill Battle site (38JA1008), if any, cannot be determined from these investigations. The possible rifle trench remains intact within 38JA272. The installation of pipeline disrupted no archaeological deposits associated with the rifle trench. Therefore, the construction of the pipeline through a portion of 38JA272 had no adverse effect on the site. It remains eligible for the National Register of Historic Places.
