  1. I am looking for assistance pertaining to the history of Native American occupation on Paris Mountain, Greenville, SC. My family has owned this property for the last eighty years and only recently we have been finding large quantities of arrowheads, pottery, flakes, scrappers, etc. I’m trying to ascertain if this land was a settlement, quarry, hunting camp or something else. If you could guide me in the right direction, I would appreciate it very much.
