Archaeology of Native Americans Lectures Oct. 22

Professor Chris Judge, USC-Lancaster will be in Beaufort County on Wed., Oct. 22nd to deliver two talks at two locations. Be sure to pay attention to the locations and times.  It would be awful to show up at the wrong lecture.

1) Learn about the archaeology of the local Yamassee Indians from 1684 up to the start of the Yamassee War at Noon at the Coastal Discovery Museum. The lecture is free but reservations are required.  Contact: Natalie Hefter, 843-689-6767, ext. 223 nhefter@coastaldiscovery.org.

2) The evening lecture concentrates on the Woodland Period in South Carolina, 1000 BC to 1200 AD.  Recent research is shedding new light on these Native Americans. The lecture will be held in the area just outside the Beaufort District Collection Research Room, 2nd floor, 311 Scott Street beginning at 6 pm.  This lecture is the first talk in a three lecture series to supplement the South Carolina Historical Society's "Shaping of South Carolina" exhibit on display now. Both the lecture and the exhibit are free, but space is limited.  First come, first seated.  Contact: Charmaine Concepcion, 843-255-6468, cseabrook@bcgov.net.
