Lunch and Learn: Salvage Archaeology in the Heart of Cofitachequi

Friday, December 21, 2018 - 12:00pm until 1:00pm

Much of successful archaeology involves our ability to “read the dirt.” In the summer of 2018, investigations were undertaken at the largest known site within this society aimed at understanding the occupational sequence and in particular when and how three extant pyramidal mounds were constructed along the Wateree River. The layers in the ground can answer many questions about the human past. Join us for this lecture.For more details about this event, please visit the website here.

The county of Lancaster, South Carolina, sits within the lands once held by the Catawba Indian Nation. The current Catawba Reservation lies about 15 miles from the campus of USC Lancaster. With strong geographical and historical ties to the Catawba, USC Lancaster has begun to develop curricular and public programs focused on Native American art and culture, with a special emphasis on the Catawba and other Native communities in South Carolina. The gardens are a site on the SC Ag + Art Tour. Open Tuesdays through Sundays, and Mondays by appointment. Admission is free.
