About Us

Formally organized in 1998, the Foothills Chapter serves the Greenville-Spartanburg-Pickens area and boasts a membership of about 25. Several academic disciplines are represented within the organization.

While the historic and pre-historic archaeology of South Carolina is the primary focus of study, the exploration of the origins of the Americas and early Americans is of keen interest to all.

In addition to regular meetings, chapter members enthusiastically participate in archaeological site surveys, “road trips” to projects in progress, and spread the word about upper South Carolina history and pre-history via talks and demonstrations with area School and civic organizations

Membership in the Foothills Chapter is open to all who have an interest in studying, recording, and preserving South Carolina historic and prehistoric remains. The Foothills Chapter follows the Constitution and By-laws of the Archaeological Society of South Carolina, Inc.
