This is a great news story on a site in South Carolina. I had the opportunity to observe the artifacts recovered from archaeological excavations at the site a few years back. The site was proposed for development, but instead will be protected as a natural preserve. Please follow the link and check it out. It just shows that archaeologists are accomplishing some great things!
Many new and interesting developments and program implementation through the Lincoln County Historical Association, and Lincoln County Museum of History are in the anticipated future.
I am the new Curator of Archaeology and Collections for the museum, and I am very excited about my new position. My varied background includes working for cultural resource firms, museums, and historical organizations. I am originally from Gastonia, NC and I have many varied interests. My research interests are specifically oriented toward "backcountry" studies and using the holistic approach known as landscape archaeology to study and interpret sites. I am also very interested in researching the Protohistoric Catawba history in the vicinity of Lincoln County, NC.
As the new curator, I will be keeping a blog to increase public awareness of important issues in relation to various issues relating to questions concerning collections care, historical architecture, local history, and archaeology. If anyone is interested in a discussion on a certain topic, the inquiries can be sent to the blog, or my e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will discuss the issues that are most significant.
