Bluffton Branch Library
120 Palmetto Way
Bluffton, SC 29910 United States

Join the Hilton Head Chapter, Archaeological Society of South Carolina and the Library’s Beaufort District Collection for “What the Heck Is It?” an artifact identification session with professional archeologists who will analyze, identify and date your artifacts. Over the years folks have presented a full range of artifacts – prehistoric, historic, projectile points, ceramic sherds, Civil War crypto devices, African dolls, 1st century lamps, etc. – to name a few. Look around the house and bring in that thing you wonder what the heck it is.  Note Well: Do not bring any weapons (guns, swords, daggers, etc.) to be examined. It is the policy of the Beaufort County Library not to allow any weapons in the libraries. No monetary valuations will be provided. Drop-in during the session with your artifacts and try to stump our esteemed archaeologists.
