Summary, etc.:
A Journey Through Time takes us back to the days when Native Americans lived on the islands between Edisto and St. Phillips Island. When Mike Hudson and Gibbes McDowell partnered with archaeologist Dr. Chester DePratter, they found Indian shell middens, various tools and pottery shards, some of which have been carbon dated to approximately 4,000 years ago. The existence of these early inhabitants has been undiscovered until now; further research and exploration will yield more clues to their way of life. Johnson Creek Camp (St. Helena Island) is one of the sites where excavation will be done in the ACE Basin (including Edisto Island). The changing shoreline over thousands of years has continually covered and uncovered Indian campsites and their artifacts; that they are now in evidence presents the perfect opportunity for ongoing research into the rich and deep history of these protective barrier islands. Includes a visit to the Beta Analytic Laboratory in Miami, FL, with Deputy Director Chris Patrick, as pottery fragments and shells are dated.
