About the Center

Established in 2009, the Center for Archaeology and Anthropology is designed to support interdisciplinary research at Coastal Carolina University.  Students and faculty work together with community members and volunteers to explore local heritage and prehistory. Dr. Carolyn Dillian, an archaeologist, and Dr. Sharon Moses, a cultural anthropologist and ethnoarchaeologist joined the Coastal Carolina University faculty in Fall of 2010.

The Center is pleased to announce new archaeology and anthropology courses for Summer and Fall 2011. Click on the news link for more information.

In the summer of 2010, an archaeological field school introduced students to the practice of archaeology from designing field surveys to digging test pits, undertaking modest excavation, and composing scholarly reports.  Click on the news link for summer 2011 field school offerings.

Dr. Cheryl Ward currently serves as director for the center and may be contacted by e-mail at cward@coastal.edu.
