Judge to keynote for Archaeology Month



Since 1996 archaeological excavations and public programs have been undertaken on a sandy knoll in the middle of the Pee Dee River swamp at a place we have named the Johannes Kolb site. A joint effort of the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, Diachronic Research Foundation, and University of South Carolina Lancaster has been conducted largely staffed by volunteers from all walks of life. Spanning from the Ice Age until very recent times, evidence from Native, African and EuroAmerican occupations abounds. Systematic excavations across the 1.5 acre site have produced nearly 200,000 artifacts.

This lecture, “Fifteen Years of Archaeology and Education at the Johannes Kolb Site” by Chris Judge, Asst. Director of the Native American Studies Program at USC Lancaster, will highlight the archaeological and educational successes to date.
