Dave Davis is currently assisting Pat Garrow on further analysis of the artifacts recovered from the museum grounds in 1969-1971. We look forward to new insights from this important Cherokee center in northwest Georgia.

The Chieftains looks forward to welcoming Dr. David Hally for a book signing and lecture regarding his new University of Alabama Press release of King: The Social Archaeology of a Late Mississippian Town in Northwestern Georgia. Dr. Hally will join us at the museum on Saturday October 4th from 1PM to 4PM.

Lastly the Chieftains Museum is proud to host the fall SGA meeting and we welcome those who might be interested in delivering a paper on current research.
