Third Tuesday: Submerged NC: Exploring North Carolina’s Underwater Cultural Heritage
October 19 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
A vast network of more than 37,000 miles of rivers, inlets, and access to the Atlantic Ocean has served the people of North Carolina for thousands of years, providing food, transportation, power, and entertainment. Human interaction with these environments leaves evidence of past North Carolinians visible in our unique underwater heritage. Join Chris Southerly, Deputy State Archaeologist, NC Office of State Archaeology, and John J. Mintz, State Archaeologist, NC Office of State Archaeology for a presentation that chronicles how the North Carolina Office of State Archaeology identifies, protects, and shares the stories of these non-renewable resources with those in North Carolina and beyond.
