Fort Prince George was erected and modified during the 1750s and 1760s to help control the South Carolina frontier. It underwent numerous modifications and was ultimately abandoned after a siege. The fort was totally excavated prior to the site’s flooding by dam construction. Using personnel field notes and archaeological drawings, researcher James Hart covers the fort’s history and the archaeological work conducted at the site during the late 1960s (1966–68). As is the case with many of the posts covered in this book, there has been an effort to re-create Fort Prince George on the basis of drawings and a model. The actual site is now underwater.
