Author(s): Jason Ellerbee; Johshua N. Fletcher

Year: 2006


On 22-24 February 2006, Brockington and Associates, Inc., conducted an intensive cultural resources survey of the Centex Port Royal Tract in Beaufort County, South Carolina. These investigations were completed for Thomas and Hutton Engineering Co. on behalf of the property owners and the developer Centex Homes, who is planning a residential development for the property. This survey was requested in compliance with state laws and federal regulations concerning the management of historical properties (i.e., archaeological sites, buildings, structures, objects, or districts listed on or eligible for the National Register of Historic Places [NRHP]) affected by development activities in the Coastal Zone of South Carolina. The cultural resources survey included a review of land ownership and use recorded in public documents, a review of previous investigations near the tract, and the excavation of shovel tests at

15- and 30-meter intervals across the tract.
