Jul 10, 2021

  • Venue: Horry County Museum
  • Address: 805 Main Street,, Conway, SC 29526
  • Time: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM

The Horry County Museum and the AVX Foundation present Mounds, Mortars and Mysteries: Mississippian Period Archaeology in the Wateree Valley- A.D. 1200-1670 on Saturday, July 10th, at 1:00 PM. Antiquarians and archaeologists have been investigating the Native American societies living along the Wateree River since the early 19th century. A concentration of mounds, artificially constructed monuments of earth, were noted here in one of the earliest publications on the archaeology of the United States in 1848, yet we still have only scratched the surface.
