Appeared in Choice on 1997-12:
Gathered here are articles that characterize the historical diversity of South Carolina. Drawing strongly on historical research, aided by historical archaeology over the past 25 years, capsule views of past landscapes are presented by historical archaeologists. The diversity of these landscapes is considerable, from the rural agricultural scene to the urban contexts of the state's coastal cities. The major and distinctive contributions of various industries--brick making, iron working, and pine tar production--are reviewed side by side with the contributions of the commercial scene like the river boat landing. In most cases archaeologists identify the variety of landscape features, now archaeological sites, that were present and discuss how they reflect the historical past. Abundant bibliographical references guide the interested reader to additional sources, many of them limited distribution articles and reports generated by preservation-oriented archaeological research. All authors argue for a "landscape" point of view, essentially an attempt to broaden the professional and public conception of historical diversity. Some maps, structure plans, and a few photographs illustrate the contributions, although nonprofessional readers would benefit from more. All levels. R. B. Clay; University of Kentucky
