Remember the graves discovered in early 2013 at the site of the new Gaillard Center near Anson Street in Charleston? Who were those people, and when were they buried there? I’m happy to report that some of the answers to these questions will soon be released, and you’re invited to come hear the latest on Thursday, November 21st 2013.
You’ll remember that back in May 2013, Dr. Eric Poplin of Brockington and Associates and I held a public forum to discuss the history of the Gaillard site and the recent excavations there. Since that time, the exhumed remains have been subjected to laboratory forensic analysis, and some of the preliminary results will be made public soon. We may never know the names of those individuals buried on the east side of Anson Street, but wer’re slowly refining our understanding of who these people were and when they were buried. If you’ d like to hear Dr. Poplin discuss the latest findings, please join us for a free event titiled:
