Gaillard Performing Hall, Charleston

Crane at Gaillard Performing Hall

February and March were interesting times at the Gaillard Center. Underground work was halted as bodies were discovered during the excavation process. State archaeologists were called to the site to properly deal with the remains; they believe that these bodies are as old as Charleston itself, which was first settled as Charles Towne around 1680.

As you can see, these are tight quarters!
