Archaeological Dig at Robertson Farm

Sifting through the caked, red soil at a dig site near the south Saluda River, near S.C. 288 on private property near Robertson’s Farm, west of Marietta, researchers have unearthed pieces of ancient history they hope will provide a glimpse of early life in the Upstate.

Since 2003, the archaeologists and volunteers returned each year for one month to Pickens County to the resting place for American Indian artifacts, a spot that has been occupied off and on for the last 10,000 years.
