The website of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources has been redesigned, and is now more attractive, not to mention informative! The DNR is the state entity responsible for Georgia’s cultural resources. The website notes:

The State of Georgia has a rich history. While many may consider Georgia’s starting point to be the founding of the State as one of the thirteen original American colonies in 1733, cultural resources reveal a story of human settlement in this area more than 12,000 years ago. Archaeology and historic preservation help us to learn about those that came before us. By preserving resources from our past, people today and our future generations can learn to appreciate the influence those resources have had in shaping the world in which we live.

The Director of HPD is archaeologist Dr. David Crass. Read more about Dr. Crass on this website, here.
