Discovery Lecture Series and Discovery Nights Resume at Coastal Discovery Museum

OCTOBER 1, 2023

Hilton Head Island, SC – Coastal Discovery Museum is thrilled to announce the return of its highly anticipated Discovery Lecture Series and Discovery Nights at the Museum for the fall and spring quarters. These engaging and informative events offer attendees the opportunity to delve into the rich natural and historical heritage of the South Carolina Lowcountry.

Discovery Lecture Series:
The Discovery Lecture Series will be held every Wednesday at the Coastal Discovery Museum from 2:30 pm to 3:30 pm. For a nominal fee of $7 per person, participants can gain access to the latest educational insights concerning the nature, preservation, and history of the Lowcountry. Our Director of Education, Dawn Brut, and Diverse Narratives Educator & Archaeologist, Katherine Seeber, have worked tirelessly to bring back beloved lecturers while introducing new topics based on the latest research.

Katherine Seeber will kickstart the Lecture Series on October 4th with her new course, "Native Americans in the Lowcountry." This lecture will provide a deep dive into the lives of the inhabitants of Hilton Head Island before the arrival of colonial settlers. Following this, on October 11th, Margaret Pickett will captivate audiences with "The Intriguing Truth About Medicine in Colonial Times," delving into the medical practices of the colonial era, including an analysis of the treatment given to George Washington during his final illness.
