About the Arkhaios poster
,artist Amiri Farris


Twenty-five years ago, October was designated as Archaeology Month in South Carolina and there are always a plethora of fascinating events and programs highlighting the world of archaeology from which to choose. One such event that has quickly become a favorite is the Arkhaios Cultural Heritage and Archaeology Film Festival, one of only two archaeological film festivals held in the United States of America. Arkhaios, now in its fourth year, takes place on Hilton Head Island, SC and was founded by Jean Guilleux, an avocational archaeologist.

Arkhaios 2017:

on University of South Carolina Campus in Columbia SC

3 Days - 15 Films

11 Countries

​15 Cultures

2017 Arkhaios Film Festival will be at Gambrell Hall, University of South Carolina campus, Columbia, SC

Intended to be an educational event showcasing the discovery of past cultures gained from archaeological research, illustrated by documentary films, it is also meant to encourage initiatives and exchanges between the different actors of the world of archaeological films. Too often these productions, which fuse art and science, are unknown and suffer from limited distribution channels. As well, a key goal of the festival is to trigger the interest of the South Carolinian filmmakers to apply their art to the state’s history......
