Gibbes House (Charleston, S.C.) , Ethnobotany--South Carolina--Charleston , Excavations (Archaeology)--South Carolina--Charleston
During February 1986 archaeologists with The Charleston Museum conducted test excavations at the Gibbes House on ·South Battery in downtown Charleston, South Carolina. The ethnobotanical remains from the Gibbes site are not particularly revealing. This ethnobotanical study, while hampered by small samples, has provided several indications of Gibbes' wealth and status, including the presence of wheat and the heavy use of coal.
