Seeking St. Augustine’s second location

Starting on Monday, April 22nd archaeological digs in the North Davis Shores area will begin as part of an investigation to test a possible location for St. Augustine’s second settlement which dates from 1566 to 1572.

The project is being conducted by a team from the South Carolina Institute of Archaeology and Anthropology under the direction of Research Professor Dr. Chester DePratter.

Project work will be in the city’s rights-of-way and in Oglethorpe Park, for which the team has secured permits from the city’s Public Works Department. The project is expected to conclude during the first week of May.
