Remarkable things are happening in the world of anthropology: some right here in South Carolina! And you can hear about them first by attending these provocative lectures on today's cutting edge field research. Listen to experts in anrthropology and archaeology present their findings from excavations at Charles Towne Landing, Cherokee sites in the mountains, Revolutionary War battlefields, ceremonial sites in Ecuador, and so much more. This series will spur your imagination and engage your intellect. Each quarterly presentation will have a fresh topic and format, from a single speaker talking about local interests to an entire conference talking about the hotest topics in the fields of Anthropology and Archaeology.
The lectures occur quarterly in February, May, August and November, so check our website or give us a call for the date and topic of the next presentation. The presentation is followed by a wine and cheese reception sponsored by the Friends of Charles Towne Landing.
Join us on May 21 at 6:30pm for "Park Roots: Genealogy in the SC State Parks", presented by Elizabeth Laney from Redcliffe Plantation SHS. During "Park Roots" Elizabeth will lead you through some of the incredible and exciting genealogical discoveries through research on plantations, CCC camps, colonial settlements, and other sites within the SCSPS. Elizabeth will provide you with tips to help you conduct research on your family tree and connect them with historical events and time periods.
