Brockington and Associates, Inc., conducted an intensive cultural resources survey and

evaluative testing of the 22 acre Battery Gaillard Tract (TMS 355-13-00-001), Lots 49 and 50 of

the Magnolia Ranch subdivision (TMS 355-09-00-079 and 355-09-00-080, respectively), as well as

a 1.4 acre marsh lot (TMS 355-09-00-092) in Charleston County, South Carolina in April and July

2004. These investigations involved background research, systematic shovel testing, ground

penetrating radar survey, and mechanical stripping of the project tract. The project was undertaken

to provide information concerning the kinds of cultural resources present on the tract and how these

resources may be affected by future use of the tract, in compliance with current state and federal

regulations concerning the management of cultural resources in the Coastal Zone of South Carolina

as administered by the regulatory programs of the US Army Corps of Engineers (33CRF Part 325)

and the South Carolina Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management (15 CFR 930).
