"Maroon Communities" Lecture now available
We had 60 people, of all ages, races, and both genders, participate in the final program of the Archaeology Month series yesterday. Those who attended experienced a fine presentation about a little known topic and created the dynamic that only an engaged audience can provide.
Because Dr. Lockley is a generous (and tech-savvy) man, you can revisit his lecture about "Maroon Communities" at the University of Warwick website. You can download the audio from his homepage on the University of Warwick website. Go to the right side of the Dr. Lockley's webpage and below the photograph of Tim and his daughter (copied in this blog entry since she's so cute) you'll see:
I gave a talk on Maroon Communities in Beaufort, SC, on Oct 27, 2009. You can download the talk and the Q&A.
Thank you to all the folks who helped make this series happen, most particularly Ian Hill, Beaufort County Historic Preservationist who has been my partner for 6 years of Archaeology Month programming; Suzanne Larson, the County's Public Information Officer who took care of most of the 2009 marketing; and our co-sponsors: Evan Thompson and Maxine Lutz of Historic Beaufort Foundation; and Geni Flowers and Harvey Varney of USC-Beaufort Libraries.
