USC Sumter Science Building Room 114, 2:30 P.M. - 3:34 P.M.
Dr. Robert C. Costello, Professor of Chemistry, USC Sumter

All interested guests are welcome

Dr. Costello will discuss his research and recent publications which provide evidence of prehistoric cultural occupations along the present shore of Lake Marion in Clarendon and Sumter counties from Clovis times approximately 13,000 years before present and continuing into the historic era.

The presentation will include a brief overview of the current status of American Archaeology featuring the demise of the "Clovis-first" paradigm which dominated archaeological thought for decades.

Display cases containing prehistoric artifacts from Lake Marion will be available for viewing and discussion following the formal presentation.
