Savannah River Site
Archeologists are conducting block excavations at a prehistoric habitation site on the Aiken Plateau.
This is one of many archeological resources on the Savannah River
Site in South Carolina that is protected under a programmatic agreement
between DOE, the South Carolina State Historic Preservation Officer,
and the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation.
Local area students participate in annual archeology camps at the Savannah
River Site in South Carolina as part of outreach and education programs
on cultural resources sponsored by DOE.
Disseminating information on archeological findings as well as preserving our national heritage are important goals of the Archeological Resources Protection Act and the National Historic Preservation Act.
