Topper site find reveals people were here long before previously thought

People were burning fires at a quarry near the Savannah River as far back as 50,000 years ago. That would have been before the worst of the last Ice Age and millennia before South Carolina is thought to have been inhabited.

The stunning finding from the Topper site near Allendale could rock the staid research world less than two decades after Al Goodyear’s first dig there took the lid off conventional archaeological thinking.
