The overall theme for the 2021 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 Archaeological Society of South Carolina will be hosting their annual Archaeology Field Day at the 12,000 Year Park on September 25th right outside our conference venue, the Cayce Tennis and Fitness Center. Events begin at 11 am and will run all afternoon. During the afternoon, James Stewart and Sarah Lowry of New South Associates will present an overview of Fort Congaree and discuss preliminary remote sensing findings. Given the public archaeology connection to the conference this year, presentations involving public involvement and education are encouraged.

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 August 15, 2021.  Thematic sessions are welcomed, but all abstracts for the session must be grouped together at the time they are submitted. 

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.
If you have any questions please contact Natalie Pope.
