Conversations with a Curator: Ice Age Giants with Curator of Natural History Matthew Gibson

August 11,2023

10:30 AM - 11:00 AM

The Charleston Museum

Details

The Last Great Ice Age occurred 2.5 million to 11,700 years ago and Lowcountry was a very different place. During this period South Carolina was inhabited by giant sloths, mammoths, and saber-toothed cats. Often their bones are found in the bottom of our local rivers or washed up on our barrier islands and by studying these remains using a combination of cutting-edge methods, paleontologists can examine an ancient ecosystem that stands in stark contrast to what we see today. Escape the heat to join Curator of Natural History Matthew Gibson in learning about these Ice Age giants and the new and interesting ways we are studying them.

Conversations with a Curator allows visitors a chance to have an in-depth look at an object or exhibit in the Museum galleries, ask questions and spark conversations. The Charleston Museum’s collections are both extraordinary and diverse and each Curator-led talk and tour allows participants to immerse themselves in a different aspect of Charleston’s rich history.

All Conversations with a Curator programs are open to the public and FREE for Members and FREE with admission.
