Discovering Ancient Appalachia

The Archaeology of the Blue Ridge Mountains
Join Dr. Alice Wright on a journey through Western North Carolina's prehistory...
The Blue Ridge Mountains have been home to Native American communities for thousands of years.  To tell their stories, we rely on archaeology – the scientific study of things they left behind.
Over the last few years, archaeologists have made exciting discoveries across Western North Carolina:
  • Two-thousand-year-old earthworks

  • Long-lost ancestral Cherokee villages

  • The earliest European fort in the interior United States

Drawing on 10 years of experience in Appalachian archaeology, Alice Wright, Assistant Professor of Anthropology at Appalachian State University, will reveal how archaeologists found and investigated these remarkable sites and discuss their significance to the history of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Please join us for this entertaining and informative presentation!
