The local chapter of the Archaeological Society of South Carolina is being formed for those interested in learning about the region's history. 

Cheryl Ward, maritime archaeologist and director of the University's new Center for Archaeology and Anthropology, is initiating the new club "for everyone who wants to be part of exploring the lives of the region's historic and prehistoric peoples."

Annual dues are $15. Officers will be elected, and there will be quarterly meetings with field trips to local sites and museums, as well as guest speakers.

 "It's all about understanding more about the life and livelihoods of people in this part of the world. We will study prehistoric people, native Americans, people who were building steamboats on the Waccamaw and sailing ships at Bucksport, as well as tobacco barns in Horry County," says Ward.
