Native inhabited what is now South Carolina for thousands of years before the area was settled by white Europeans in the late 17th century. In 1670, the English established a large settlement in the region. Then in 1710 they divided the territory into two colonies: North and South Carolina. Soon after, European settlers came to build plantations to grow rice and indigo and they sent slaves to work in these plantations.
