City manager to help excavate colonial cemetery

City Manager Bill Weeks will dust off his archaeological skills as he takes on the excavation of a Colonial-era cemetery recently discovered on the grounds of the old Glynn Middle School.

The city had contemplated hiring an archaeology firm to handle the work before Weeks, who describes archaeology as his avocation, offered his services.

“I’ve done five cemeteries – African-American, Colonial and Antebellum — already in South Carolina,” he said.

Well, as long as he’s qualified to do a decent job. . . . .

(there’s a funny story behind the title, too)
