In the past few days the archaeological excavation at South Adger’s Wharf has attracted the attention of many Charlestonians, tourists, and journalists. If you would like to meet some members of the Mayor’s Walled City Task Force and hear the archaeologists talk about their work at the dig, you’re invited to join us for a public program at the Charleston County Public Library on Wednesday, January 30th, at 7:00 p.m.

On that evening, Dr. Nic Butler, Special Collections manager at the library, will host a program titled “New Archaeology in Charleston: The South Adger’s Wharf Dig.” Besides hearing first-person reports from the participants, you’ll learn about the history of the site, see more photographs from the excavation, and even see some of the artifacts uncovered at the dig.

If you’re interested in learning more about this program, you can contact Dr. Nic Butler at at (843) 805-6968 or butlern[at] You can also link directly to a description of the January 30th program on our “Upcoming Events” page.
