On Tuesday, January 22, seven cadets from Camden Military Archaeological Society visited the Adamson Indian Mounds in Camden. The cadets, Nicholas Sheffron, Luke and Matthew Halligan, William Cole, Alexander Whitmore, Tanner Youngblood and Carlton Black were met there by Archaeology Professor Christopher Judge (USC Lancaster) and the land owner, Mack Willett. At the base of the mound, Professor Judge explained the culture of the Mississippian Indians, the historical accounts of the visits of the Spanish conquistadors and the archaeological work he has done on the site. After his lecture, the cadets were free to explore the site and to climb on the mounds.
