KCC playing host to statewide archaeology conference

Experts in Hawaiian and Pacific archaeology, historic preservation and cultural history are scheduled to make presentations at the Hawaiian Archaeology Conference at the Kaua’i Community College from Oct. 11-13.

The three-day event sponsored by the Society for Hawaiian Archaeology is partly intended to educate the public about Hawaiian and Pacific archaeology.

Presentations will be made on archeological work on Kaua’i, the Big Island and American Samoa, cultural impact studies and cultural landscapes and historic archeology, including new discoveries in underwater archaeology, according to representatives with the event.

Also a get-together is planned for Saturday night at Gaylord’s at Kilohana, where a lavish meal is planned.

The gathering will be held in the living room from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.
