Each fall the Archaeology Society of South Carolina sponsors a free gathering of archaeologists, prehistoric and historic skills demonstrators, story tellers, and others, who present how the people of South Carolina’s distant and recent pasts experienced their daily lives through work, play, food, and community.

This year our Annual Fall Field Day event will take place on September 29th in Cayce at the 12,000 Year History Park on Congaree Creek! Come visit us if you’ve ever wanted to learn how stone tools and pottery were made, to try throwing an atl-atl, or if you are interested in learning about active archaeological excavations occurring in our state!
