Anthropology Lecture Series at Charles Towne Landing

Remarkable things are happening in the world of anthropology: some right here in South Carolina! And you can hear about them first by attending these provocative lectures on today's cutting edge field research. Listen to experts in anrthropology and archaeology present their findings from excavations at Charles Towne Landing, Cherokee sites in the mountains, Revolutionary War battlefields, ceremonial sites in Ecuador, and so much more. This series will spur your imagination and engage your intellect. Each quarterly presentation will have a fresh topic and format, from a single speaker talking about local interests to an entire conference talking about the hotest topics in the fields of Anthropology and Archaeology. The lectures occur quarterly in February, May, August and November, so check our website or give us a call for the date and topic of the next presentation. The presentation is followed by a wine and cheese reception sponsored by the Friends of Charles Towne Landing. Join us on Tuesday, November 18th, at 6:30 PM for a presentation by Nicole Isenbarger. Since 1968, archaeological research at Charles Towne Landing State Historic Site has provided us with a better understanding of the early Colonial history of South Carolina. Colonoware ceramics that have been recovered from the 1670-1730 contexts at the Miller site are some of the earliest known examples of this important pottery. Incorporating her analyses of the Lord Ashley site (1674-1685) Colonoware with the Miller site creates an expanded dataset that offers new insights regarding early cultural and social interactions between African, European, and Native peoples in 1670s Carolina.
