A local man has unearthed two ancient stone tools in an archaeological dig in Allendale County, South Carolina, a rare find that could provide more information about how early Americans lived.
And if more evidence proves the artefact is a new type of tool and one archaeologist haven't found before, it could be named after Matthew Carey of Hilton Head Island.
The 22-year old, University of South Carolina anthropology major volunteered at the Topper Site where USC archaeologist Albert Goodyear has been excavating for 10 years. Carey found the tools on June 8, the last day of the 2008 dig.
