DRAYTON HALL: AN UNDERWATER ARCHEOLOGICAL SURVEY
IN THE ASHLEY RIVER by Ralph Wilbanks
Research Manuscript Series 159
Usually when we record information about artifacts, we give a general description of the area where it was found. Typically recorded is the county or river in which an item was found and possibly whether is was up or down river. This is done to protect the integrity of the sites and not to simply provide a “where to dive” location.
However, there are many unique sites such as Fort Dorchester, Willtown Bluff, Strawberry Landing, Mepkin Plantation, Bluff Plantation, and Wadboo Creek, where divers have dived for decades. Reports written and published on these sites allow generations of history and experience to be shared as well as encourage others to contribute their own stories. Please click on the following links to access several of these reports.
