Town Creek Indian MoundTown Creek Indian Mound is an unusual phenomenon in the history of North American archaeology. Situated on Little River (a tributary of the Great Pee Dee in central North Carolina), it has been the focus of a consistent program of archaeological research under one director for more than half a century.

Historic BathEuropean settlement near the Pamlico River in the 1690s led to the founding of Bath, North Carolina's first town, in 1705. By 1708, Bath had 50 people and 12 houses. Political rivalries, Indian wars, and piracy marked its early years but in 1746 Bath was considered for the colony's capital.
