RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- The boundary between North Carolina and South Carolina will be the subject of a program sponsored by the North Carolina State Archives.

The program will be Monday afternoon in the State Archives Search Room at the North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources in Raleigh. The chief of the North Carolina Geodetic Survey will provide an overview of the boundary between the Carolinas.

Several maps illustrating the shifting boundaries will be on display. North Carolina and South Carolina were recognized as separate entities by the late 1600s, but the exact boundary was disputed for nearly 200 years.

In 1994, the two states began working together to re-establish the boundary, an effort that took almost 20 years and is still playing out. The program will examine how the dispute worked out.
