Reaching for the Channel, Part 3

Author(s): Jim McKee

Year: 2016


The preservation and exploration of William Dry’s wharf and the entire Brunswick Town/Fort Anderson State Historic Site waterfront would not be possible without the involvement of many different organizations and entities. What started as an archaeological project has evolved into one of the largest and most innovative shoreline stabilization projects in the nation. Archaeologists from the NC Department of Cultural Resources, United States Army Corps of Engineers, East Carolina University, Wake Technical Community College, and from the private sector have all been involved in the exploration and conservation of artifacts associated with Dry’s Wharf and two others that have been located on the waterfront. In addition, assistance from various educational and environmental entities have made this an exciting project.
