Maps & Directions

Join us at the Coastal Discovery Museum for this presentation on February 17 at 2 pm with Matthew Sanger, the Curator of North American Archaeology at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American Indian.  Native Americans built the Sea Pines Shell Ring out of tens of thousands of oyster and clam shells roughly 4000 years ago.  He will discuss the recent work at the Sea Pines Shell Ring which shows Native Americans changed their use of the site over time from a place of habitation to a place to conduct rituals and cremate their dead.

This is a virtual only presentation and the cost is $5.  Reservations are required and may be made by calling 843-689-6767 ext. 223.
