During August, you may recall that there was a week-long exploratory archaeology dig, in The Point neighborhood, searching for signs of the lost 17th century Scottish Colony of Stuarts Town.

For the past few months, all material found has been at the South Carolina Institute of Archaeology and Anthropology (SCIAA) at USC in Columbia - being cleaned, examined, and analyzed.

As planned, there will be a free, public symposium to review those findings - as well as presentations on the latest scholarship around Stuarts Town history, and that of their allies the Yamassee Indians.

Lobby doors open to the public at 12:30, and seating begins at 12:45 on a first-come first-served basis.
