Cypress Gardens Presentation

Jun 12, 2009

On June 11, 2009 Brockington senior historian Charlie Philips addressed the Berkeley County, South Carolina Chamber of Commerce about the story of Dean Hall at Cypress Gardens. Berkeley County owns the public gardens which were built out of an old rice field reservoir at Dean Hall Plantation on the Cooper River near Charleston.

The History Workshop is producing a new display for the gardens that tells the story of Dean Hall. The project was initiated by a data recovery of the settlement area of Dean Hall for Dupont Corporation's Kevlar plant expansion in November of 2007 in which all Brockington offices contributed.

Lord Ashley Site

Mar 02, 2009

Brockington's work at St. Giles Plantation, also known as the settlement site of Lord Anthony Ashley Cooper, was featured recently in the Post and Courier. While conducting fieldwork to include the site in the Ashley River Historic District, Brockington archaeologists discovered not only an artifact assemblage that is exclusively seventeenth century, but also a large, intact chimney foundation. This discovery is very important for research dealing with the first 20 years of the Carolina colony, and also, the very first trade initiated between the British and Native Americans.
