Clemson students hope to dig up the past at Fort Hill archaeological site

Students and faculty hope to unearth remnants that help tell the stories of the men, women and children who lived and worked as slaves during the antebellum era on the Fort Hill property on what now is the Clemson University campus. There will be a drop-in at the archaeological site where they are digging from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday, June 19, to commemorate Juneteenth, which marks the emancipation of the last remaining enslaved people in the United States.
