Richmond Hill, a Waccamaw Neck rice plantation, lay dormant in its dark soil waiting to be aroused from a century of sleep. In 1983 archaeologist James L. Michie of the S.C. Institute of Archaeology and Anthropology began a series of investigations that would ultimately discover house remains related to the planter, overseer, driver, and a community of slaves on this rice plantation. It is also a critical analysis of artifacts which present a stirring narrative about people who lived in a closed society given only to vast fields of rice. Reviews praised Michie for "bridging the gap between the technical archaeological process and the avocational reader," for "making an invaluable contribution to the knowledge of Waccamaw Rice Plantations," and for writing "in a fascinating, romantic fashion - an engrossing account of life in another time."
