Hampton Plantation is an eighteenth- and nineteenth-century rice plantation located 45 miles north of Charleston in the Santee River Basin. Archaeologists are focusing current efforts on the site of a slave house. These excavations will help the park better understand and tell the stories of the lives of the enslaved people who lived, worked, and carved out a community at Hampton Plantation.
Volunteers will partipate in screening and artifact washing. You are welcome to participate for a day or two or stay the whole week if you have the time.
This program will prove to be a great experience and an opportunity to make new friends with similar interests or do something completely different with your old friends!
Please RSVP to David Jones ( email@example.com ) as volunteer spots are limited. For information about overnight accommodations or the program in general, call David Jones at 803-734-1521.
