About the Arkhaios posterartist Amiri Farris



The Coastal Discovery Museum is proud to be partner in presenting the Arkhaios Film Festival for its second year.  As we strive to foster greater knowledge and appreciation of the cultural heritage and natural history of South Carolina’s Lowcountry we also think it is important to bring global perspectives to Hilton Head Island through programs like Arkhaios.....

The South Carolina Institute of Archaeology and Anthropology is honored to be a part of the Arkhaios Film Festival for the second year.  Last year was an amazing success and having previewed the 2014 entries, I am confident that festivalgoers are going to be well rewarded again this year.....
