Discovering Dave

The Savannah River Archaeological Research Program (SRARP) is a division of the South Carolina Institute of Archaeology and Anthropology (SCIAA) at the University of South Carolina (USC). The SRARP is located on the Savannah River Site (SRS) and manages the cultural resources for the United States Department of Energy (DOE).

This trailer highlights the upcoming documentary on the slave potter Dave. It will focus on the archaeological excavation of a stoneware vessel created by Dave. It will also include interviews with historians, artists, and authors discussing Dave's life and the time he lived in. Finally, the documentary will share what plans the SRARP has for the future of this important artifact.
