The mission of the South Carolina Institute of Archaeology and Anthropology, a part of the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of South Carolina, is to conduct archaeological research, conserve the state's archaeological heritage and communicate this information to the public and to the profession. The Institute cooperates and consults with state and federal agencies and with private organizations to increase understanding of South Carolina's past. The collections that result from research are a primary source of information. It is important that the archaeological collections are curated, maintained, and accessible for the purposes of education, research, cultural use and heritage preservation, and display. This manual was designed to assist and support the appropriate use of the collections. It is the culmination of the collaboration between several organizations, and has been vetted by a national panel of experts.
