Elliott speaks about Ossabaw

For several years, our spring event has been a lecture that we sponsor with the Savannah College of Art and Design. This year on April 8, our speaker was Dan Elliott of the Lamar Institute, who talked about his excavations on Ossabaw Island in “Tip of the Iceberg: Archaeology and Architecture at North End Plantation, Ossabaw Island.” He began with a description of the three existing tabby slave cabins, then went on to discuss evidence of many more structures found beneath the ground surface—the 90% of the iceberg! The venue for the event was in the SCAD Student Center, an interesting architectural renovation of an old synagogue.

Our Annual Meeting is still in the planning stages, but should take place in late June or early July. Anyone in the Savannah area wishing to join us is welcome. Please contact Chica or Carl Arndt at (912) 920-2299 or Carndt2651@aol.com for more information.
