If you’ve been around archaeology in Georgia for a few decades, you may recognize the “upstairs” archaeology lab at the University of Georgia, on the second floor of Baldwin Hall, in Athens, ca. 1988.

This area is now a modern computer lab and the (slightly) dusty artifacts and boxes and storage cabinets are now installed in the curation facility attached to the Georgia Archaeological Site File in the Riverbend Research Lab building in the southern part of the UGA Campus.
