The overall theme for the 2022 Southeastern Conference on Historic Sites Archaeology is Colonial and Early National Period Trade and Commerce. However, presentations on all forms of current research in historical archaeology are welcome. The location of the annual meeting in the City of Columbia, SC provides a great setting for this year’s conference theme. The greater Columbia Area was the focus of early trade, commerce, and settlement.

Papers should be 15 to 20 minutes long. If you plan to give a presentation or bring a poster to display, abstracts are due by June 15, 2022.  .  Thematic sessions are welcomed, but all abstracts for the session must be grouped together at the time they are submitted.  Due to wall space, posters must be no larger than 5 feet wide. 

Please include the following information:

  • Paper/Poster Title
  • Authors and their Affiliation
  • Email Address
  • Abstract: No more than 300 words.

Please email abstracts to Tom Beaman and follow up if confirmation email is not received.
