Digging the Past Through Archaeology
Colonial Dorchester State Historic Site
Archaeologists discover “new” things everyday at the site of the colonial town of Dorchester, now Colonial Dorchester State Historic Site. The often untold stories of daily life take shape through the efforts of archaeologists as they uncover, clean, analyze and care for the clues left behind of life in a frontier village and trading town. If you have ever thought “it would be neat to work with an archaeologist,” this is your opportunity. Experience first-hand the excitement of discovery, help curate artifacts in the laboratory, and spend the day with us. This program offers insight into the roll of an Archaeologist while promoting proper ethical involvement in the protection and preservation of South Carolina’s historical resources.
