Welcome to the Archaeological Society of South Carolina, Inc. (ASSC)
The Archaeological Society of South Carolina has been in operation since 1968. Our goal is to share information about South Carolina's archaeological heritage. We do this through our annual conference, which is held in the Spring, a Fall Field Day event, a quarterly newsletter, and via the internet with this web site, a blog, and a Facebook page.

Each fall, the ASSC sponsors a gathering of archaeologists, prehistoric and historic skills demonstrators, story tellers, and others who present how the people of South Carolina's distant and recent pasts experienced their daily lives through work, play, food, and community.
Fun for all ages and FREE admission for all!
