This study uses a variety of cartographic resources to identify potential archaeological and historical resources in Georgetown County. Resources used included eighteenth, nineteenth, and early twentieth century maps, plats, topographic quadrangles, and navigation charts. Sites identified included plantation settlements, churches, villages, slave settlements, cemeteries, industrial sites (such as mills, gins, and tar kilns), as well as a few underwater sites, such as wrecks. The goal of this research is to document the usefulness and cost-effectiveness of this approach as an initial planning tool. It is intended to guide, not replace, both intensive historical research and in-field surveys.
