The University of South Carolina is accepting volunteer applications from those interested in helping excavate archaeological sites along the Savannah River from April 30 to June 2.
Volunteers will learn excavation techniques and how to identify artifacts at the Topper site in Allendale County, where evidence of Ice Age man has been discovered.
The digs will be led by archaeologist Albert Goodyear of the S.C. Institute of Archaeology and Anthropology.
The cost is $488 per week, of which $400 is tax deductible. The price includes evening lectures and programs, lunch and evening meals, a workbook, and a T-shirt.
Volunteers can register online at www.allendale-expedition.net or by calling Goodyear at 803-576-6579. Questions can also be directed to Goodyear by email at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
