News From Georgia Archaeology

Camp Lawton Excavation at Magnolia Springs State Park will offer "Public Days" on Sunday, March 27, from 11:00-4:00, and Saturday, April 9 from 10:00-3:00. This information is from the state park website: They have a $5 parking fee. Phone number is (478) 982-1660. The Georgia Southern University website has more detailed information, since the dig is being directed by Dr. Sue Moore of the Department of Sociology and Anthropology.

Society for Georgia Archaeology Spring Meeting on May 14-15 in McDonogh, Georgia. The theme for this meeting is: "Gone But Not Forgotten: Rediscovering the Civil War through Archaeology". More information and a registration form is available at: Archaeology Month is May, so if our group wants to have an event, we should send in our information by the end of the month to have it publicized on the SGA website.

And lastly, we have an opportunity to see the Brunswick Canal and the ruins of Elizafield Plantation, both located right next to each other at a site near Darien, Georgia. If there are enough people interested in making the trip, there is a possibility of using a bus or van for the drive, and stopping off at a choice of several good restaurants for lunch. Let us know if you would be interested in going this trip?
