CHARLESTON, S.C. — A historic site along the South Carolina coast is inviting visitors to look at archeologists' work to explore a town lot from 1671.

Archeologists and historical interpreters were giving tours of the site Saturday at Charles Towne Landing in Charleston. The archeologists recently found brick walls, lime floor, multi-paned window glass fragments, pottery, furniture parts, and a gold-plated watch cover. 

More tours will take place later, the site said. Charles Towne Landing just off the Ashley River was the first English settlement in South Carolina and exhibits at the site show how some of the earliest European settlers to the state lived.
