The University of South Carolina is accepting 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 a week, of which $400 is tax deductible.
Volunteers can register online at www.allendale-expedition.net or by calling Goodyear at 803-576-6579. Questions also can be directed to Goodyear by emailing email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
