    "Of sterling worth and good qualities" : status and domesticity in nineteenth-century middle class Charleston : archaeological investigations at site 38CH1871, Marlene & Nathan Addlestone Library, College of Charleston
    (South Carolina State Library, 2004-08-30) Joseph, J. W.; New South Associates; Enwright Associates
    This project provided new insights into Charleston history and culture. The study suggested that the households under consideration used material culture related to dining and tea drinking as one of several ways of demarcating their class positions and affiliations. One of the findings of this study was that stylistic devices on ceramic teawares may have served to signal class affiliations among the planters. This study also explored the meanings attached to certain artifacts in the context of southern society.

    Lying in a mature mixed pine and hardwood forest, the Tree Runner Site rests near the crest of the bluff overlooking a freshwater marsh of the May River. The site was recommended as potentially eligible for the National Register due to its potential to add significantly to our understanding of SC's Pre-Contact Period.
