Representing Archaeology Month Team 2010, I accepted the Beaufort County Council's proclamation that October is "Archaeology Month" yesterday. Unfortunately, neither Ian Hill nor Ian deNeeve were able to attend.
Archaeology Month 2010 is always a collaborative venture. This year we were very fortunate to have Beaufort County GIS employee Ian deNeeve on our team. Ian deNeeve created the GIS mapping poster going on display in each Branch of the Beaufort County Library (just as soon as the courier can deliver them) as well as a self-guided map of tabby sites in downtown Beaufort that is available through the Library’s website.
A gentle reminder: We have two presentations coming up. Mary Socci, Palmetto Bluff’s resident archaeologist will be in Bluffton Branch Library on Oct. 19th to talk about how historical documents and archaeological sciences and new technologies have facilitated her work inside Palmetto Bluff. On Oct. 26th, Carl Steen and Dr. Jodi Barnes will be here in Council Chambers to discuss the special documentary and technological challenges of uncovering “Gullah archaeology.” Each presentation is free and open to the public.
In addition to finding the program schedule on the Library’s website, we have an "Archaeology Month" button on the County’s new website.
