Abstract:
Archaeological excavations reopened in Brunswick Town forty-one years after Dr. Stanley A. South's work in the 1960s. Contemporary work focused on Civil War-era earthworks that stretch across the Brunswick Town/Fort Anderson State Historic Site and aim to answer questions about construction and gun placement within the earthworks. John Mintz, assistant state archaeologist, oversaw the work which took place from April 6-9th.
