This project included an archaeological survey by Prof. Andrew Womack and students in ANT-304 Archaeological Methods and Theory in Spring of 2022 on the campus of Furman University. The archaeological survey, located on campus property, exists as part of ongoing research conducted by the “Furman Landscapes Archaeological Project” in order to garner a better understanding of the land-use and occupation history of the current Furman campus. Our focus this season was on the remains of a historic structure visible in aerial photos from the 1940s, but with only a foundation are surrounding debris visible today. Our survey and test excavations of this area allowed us to garner a better understanding of the dating and use of this building, which most likely was occupied from the late 1800s or early 1900s until around 1950. Our research also laid the groundwork for further archaeological investigations in this and other areas of campus.
