Volunteer Archaeology Lab

Every Thursday from 3:00 - 7:00 pm, interested members of the public can join archaeologist Chris Judge in the Kolb Archaeology Lab.  Volunteers help wash and catalog artifacts from the Johannes Kolb Archaeology and Education Project and get an idea of what happens in an archaeology lab.

Chris Judge at work in the archaeology labThe Johannes Kolb Archaeology and Education Project will return to Mechanicsville, Darlington County, South Carolina from March 10 - 21, 2014.  Over the years archaeologists working with interested members of the public have unraveled many secrets from this old beach dune on the Great Pee Dee River.  We have discovered spear points left by ice age hunters, tools of early to mid-Holocene hunter gatherers (10,000-3,000 years ago), including the oldest pottery made by Native Americans in the United States, Woodland period village dwellers (A.D. 500-1200), a colonial period frontier home site of Johannes and Sarah Kolb and their nine children, a slave village from the late 18th through the mid-19th century, and a logging camp and saw mill operated between 1890 and the first World War.

Come sort through history with us and see what you find.

No experience necessary!
