POLLEN AND PHYTOLITH ANALYSIS OF SAMPLES FROM SITES 38CH1541 AND 38CH1542, CHARLESTON COUNTY, SOUTH CAROLINA
Author(s): Linda Scott Cummings
Site 38CH1541, dating to the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, represents the main Mullet Hall Plantation settlement. Mullet transferred the property to James Legare, but there is little evidence of occupation postbellum. Samples from three Colonial era trash pits, two wall trenches, and four storage pits, were examined for pollen and phytoliths to inform concerning economic activities at the plantation.
Site 38CH1542 includes two linear slave settlements, appearing on maps in 1854. One Antebellum wall trench and one trash pit from the African-American settlement also were examined for pollen and phytolith evidence of economic activity.
