Back by popular demand, the Northwest Georgia Archaeology Society will hold a prehistoric pottery washing and seminar on Thursday, January 14, 2010 at New Echota Historic Site located near Calhoun, Georgia. The meeting will begin at 7 pm.

Jim Langford, President of the Coosawattee Foundation, will lecture and supervise this event.

“For several years, we held this program in January as part of our regular meeting of the Northwest Georgia Archaeology Society. We stopped a couple of years ago, but many people have requested that we have another such seminar,” stated Mr. Langford.

He continued, “we wash and identify pottery from multiple time periods while learning about the chronological sequence of the pottery types and their methods of manufacture. We always have a good turnout for this program, and everyone seems to really enjoy it.”

The New Echota Historic Site located on GA Hwy. 225 (Exit #317) just north of I-75 about 1 mile. For those using GPS systems, the physical address is 1211 Chatsworth Hwy, Calhoun, Georgia 30701.
