Since 2000, Georgia Southern University has been investigating inland rice plantations on the Coosawhatchie River in Jasper County, South Carolina.  Mont Repose plantation has been the primary focus of this work but recently investigations moved to the north side of the river where at least four additional plantations have been located.  Preliminary research has focused on structural analysis of these plantations, particularly locating outlying features in addition to the main house complex.  Because documentary evidence is particularly sparse for this region archaeology has proven to be the primary way of identifying the function and layout of these plantation features.
