A Look Into the Past: An Overview of the Archaeology Program in Lincoln County, NC

Presented by: January W. Costa, Lincoln County Historical Association

Lincoln County, situated in North Carolina's Piedmont region, is steeped in a historic and cultural heritage that spans over two hundred years. It is one of the oldest counties west of the Catawba River. The landscape is rich with early landmarks and historic sites. They act as a reminder of the pioneers that came to the area in search of new opportunity and rich farming. January Costa will discuss the work that she has accomplished in the past 10 years to create an archaeology program in Lincoln County, North Carolina. She will present previous research on several sites, information on new research projects, and an overview of the many activities going on through the LCHA. The Lincoln County Historical Association started the Archaeology Program in 2008, with the goal to research, study, and record the cultural resources and history of Lincoln County, NC.
