Fernbank Museum of Natural History in Atlanta announces that an exhibit titled “De Soto’s Footprints: New Archaeological Evidence from Georgia” will open in May 2010. The exhibit features the findings of Fernbank Museum’s ongoing archaeological explorations along the lower Ocmulgee River. Artifacts and other information highlights the unexpected discovery of early Spanish artifacts, dating before 1550, that quite possibly are associated with Hernando de Soto’s trek across Georgia in 1540.
The Museum is open daily from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.
The exhibit admission is included with Museum admission: Adults $15,
Students and Seniors $14, Children ages 3-12 $13, Children 2 and
