Presentation by Dr. Steve Davis, Archaeological Investigations in Hillsborough and on the UNC Campus  (Programs) - Orange County has a rich history of human occupation spanning more than 12,000 years, and for more than 80 years, archaeologists from UNC’s Research Laboratories of Archaeology have investigated many of the county’s archaeological sites through survey and excavation.  This talk will highlight work at four of these sites—two on Eno River near Hillsborough where the Occaneechi and ancestors of the Shakori tribe once lived, and two on the UNC Campus just off Franklin Street where privately-owned buildings were constructed during the early years of the University.
