Established in 1991, South Carolina Archaeology month was established to help raise awareness on the importance of archaeology, help increase public outreach of ongoing work throughout the state of South Carolina, and educate the public on what can be done to help protect, preserve, and study the state’s archaeological resources.
This event takes place each October. Programs may include: exhibits, demonstrations, tours, lectures, dining, canoe trips, artifact identification, lantern tours, and much, much more on Archaeological and Historic Sites located throughout South Carolina.
For 2020, we’re excited to announce that we’ll be celebrating Archaeology Month virtually through a series of events from interviews to special content related to this year’s theme – Avocational Archaeology. Visit our 2020 Archaeology Month page here for more info!
