Carolina Piedmont Seminar Series

From humble beginnings the mammals came to dominate the world left by the dinosaurs. Explore the times when South Carolina was more like South America, and the Eastern U.S. like East Africa! Fossils of giant armadillos, mastodons, lions and many others will tell the story and lead us to the end of the Ice Ages and a mysterious mass extinction. This is the final seminar in a series on the Carolina Piedmont through time.
