The State reports that Second Annual Drayton Hall Archaeological Institute is holding a ten-day program open to any archaeologically interested people who want to get down and dirty with some real live fieldwork. 

The program will examine evidence of 17th and 18th-century occupation, including the structure beneath Drayton Hall that dates to the 1680s. Participants will learn the methods and theories of fieldwork while acquiring practical skills in excavation, recording, artifact identification, and laboratory work. 

Spots fill up fast, so register for just 2 or all 10 days of the excavation by contacting archaeologist Sarah Stroud at (843) 769-2637 or Director of Preservation Dr. Carter Hudgins at (843) 769-2617.
