They Were Here: Ice Age Humans in SC

In the last decade, scientists have made startling discoveries indicating that Ice Age humans were in the Western hemisphere between 15 – to 20,000 years ago. Four archaeological sites related to these Ice Age humans are being studied, and one of those sites, called the Topper Site, is located in Allendale County, South Carolina. The story of the Topper dig site has gained international attention, since it challenges previously established notions of when humans first arrived in the Western Hemisphere.
