The 44th Annual Conference on South Carolina Archaeology will be held on Saturday, February 17th, 2018 at USC-Columbia.

This year’s conference theme is the 50th Anniversary of the Archaeological Society of South Carolina and we are hoping to feature papers discussing the history of our Society and it’s various chapters, as well as our general session on SC archaeology.

This year’s keynote speakers will be Rita and Dan Elliot, affiliates with the LAMAR Institute and the Society for Georgia Archaeology. Rita and Dan will discuss the parallels between our two societies and will be bringing a very special guest, Abby the ArchaeoBus! The ArchaeoBus is Georgia’s mobile archaeology classroom and a traveling emissary for the Society for Georgia Archaeology and focused on bringing dynamic education programs to students and people around the state.

Registration for the conference will be on site and will be free for current ASSC members and $10 for non-members. We will also be signing up new members and taking membership renewals during the conference.

Stay tuned for more details about this year’s conference!
