Intensive Cultural Resources Survey of the Carsons Tract


In August 2007, Brockington and Associates, Inc., conducted an intensive cultural

resources investigation of the Carsons Tract in Beaufort County, South Carolina. The project

tract is located southwest of Beaufort, east of SC Route 280, overlooking the marshes of Battery

Creek. This survey includes a review of the history of land ownership and use through public

documents, a review of the previous investigations within one mile of the project tract, and the

results of the excavation of shovel tests at 30-meter intervals over the tract. This cultural

resources survey was undertaken to provide information concerning the kinds of cultural

resources present on the tract and how future use of the tract may affect these resources. This

cultural resources survey provides compliance with current state and federal regulations

regarding the management of cultural resources in the Coastal Zone of South Carolina as

administered by the regulatory program of the South Carolina Office of Ocean and Coastal

Resource Management.
