Exploring Joara is committed to promoting public archaeology in the upper Catawba and Yadkin river valleys of western North Carolina.  With a threefold emphasis on supporting research, education and outreach, the foundation is dedicated to finding and protecting archaeological resources while fostering an understanding and appreciation for archaeology in the community.  The foundation supports work at the Berry site, the remains of sixteenth-century Fort San Juan at the native town of Joara, and runs a public archaeology program that includes field schools, teacher workshops, summer archaeology camps, and presentations and workshops for schools and organizations.

The Burning of Fort San Juan

“It is a story of great scholarship, archaeology at its
best, hot dirty physical work and luck.”
– Producer, Tom Earnhardt, Exploring North Carolina Series, UNC-TV, in “The First, Lost Colony”
