May is Archaeology Month in Georgia!

Submitted by Sammy Smith (


Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue has proclaimed that May is Archaeology Month in Georgia. (Read about the proclamation signing here.) Celebratory and educational activities celebrating Archaeology Month are planned around the state. (Read about these activities here, or check the SGA calendar here.)

The highlight of Archaeology Month for many SGA members is likely to be the semi-annual meeting of the Society on May 16th and 17th in Macon. The theme of the meeting’s presentations will be “Mounds in our Midst.” At the meeting, SGA’s new ArchaeoBus will be christened! Read more about the meeting here.

Please enjoy Archaeology Month in Georgia, and, perhaps, think about what you can do to be a better steward for our fragile archaeological resources.
