Celebrate archaeology by attending three lectures about local history.

Strangers in a Familiar Land: The East Cooper Planter that History Forgot

Discover the Yamasee, arguably the most important native allies of the nascent Carolina Colony between the years of 1685-1715.

Learn how artifacts, structural remains, underwater archaeology and the former rice fields come together to help explore this Lowcountry landmark’s history.
