CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP/WCIV) - An historian and an archaeologist are holding a program about the graveyard that was discovered in Charleston's historic district earlier this year.

A program at the Charleston County Library scheduled for Wednesday will focus on the graveyard with a discussion of whom the people were and why they were buried there.

As workers were building a new $142 million performing arts center in the city in February, they came across a graveyard believed to date to the early 1700s.

Nic Butler, the library's public historian, is speaking. Also set to speak is Eric Poplin, the senior archaeologist for Brockington and Associates, the company that excavated the graves and removed the remains.

The program is scheduled forWed. May 1 at 6 p.m. and will be held at the Charleston County Main Library Auditorium at 68 Calhoun Street. The program is free and open to the public.
