Lectures: Prof. Judge on Native Americans

Professor Chris Judge, USC-Lancaster will be in Beaufort County on Wed., Oct. 22nd to deliver two talks at two locations to help us celebrate Archaeology Month. Be sure to pay attention to the locations and times. It would be awful to show up at the wrong lecture.
