South Carolina Archaeology Month 2008

SC Archaeology Month is organized by the South Carolina Institute of Archaeology and Anthropology (SCIAA).

SCIAA's goals for Archaeology Month are:
+ Stimulate public pride in SC's archaeological heritage
+ Increase public understanding of why archaeological research is important
+ Heighten public awareness of how many archaeological resources are lost each year in SC
+ Educate the public about what they can do to help protect and study SC's archaeological resources
+ Get more people involved in legitimate archaeological activities.

Nearly 50 organizations throughout South Carolina offer programs each year to celebrate. The 2008 theme is "Native Americans in South Carolina from the 16th Century to the Present." Read through the SCIAA Calendar of Events. You're bound to find a program or two that will interest you!
