WINNABOW, NC (WECT) - Starting this Saturday, North Carolina's historic sites will have special events on the second Saturday of each month.
This weekend was the first Saturday in the series. At historic Brunswick Town they had activities relating to the site's archeological history.
Archeologist Stanley South signed copies of his book and talked to folks about his discoveries. He unearthed many artifacts during the 1950s and 1960s.
Archeologist Tom Beaman said South is one of the most highly respected people in the field. Many of the artifacts South unearthed at Brunswick Town date back to the Civil War era.
"We don't find whole piece of plates and pots we find pieces and fragments—the broken remains. But that tells us just as much as having the whole piece," Beaman said.
The "Second Saturday" series will continue the second Saturday's of July and August.
