Submitted by Jim Langford (jlangford@fc-solutions.com)

Northwest Georgia Archaeology Society member Jim Langford sent thesga.org this notice…. NGAS is a Chapter of the Society for Georgia Archaeology.

Greeting Friends of Archaeology! Come out Thursday, November 11th, to Etowah Mounds Museum to hear a great presentation about prehistoric stone structures in Northwest Georgia. The presentation will be part of the meeting of the Northwest Georgia Archaeology Society. Meeting will begin at 7pm. Directions to the meeting are below.

Prehistoric Stone Constructions in Georgia: An Overview will be presented by Tommy Hudson, local researcher and founding member of the Eastern States Rock Art Research Association.

This presentation is the culmination of 40 years of Tommy’s searching through the woods of Georgia for stone piles, walls, and other unusual stone constructions created by the earliest inhabitants of Georgia.

Tommy’s work has contributed greatly to a new repository of information to be housed at the University of Tennessee that will document rock structures—“petro-forms”—of all kinds that exist in the eastern United States.

As usual, all members of the public are invited, and encouraged, to attend meetings of the Northwest Georgia Archaeology Society. After this November meeting at Etowah, the following meeting will be held on January 13th at the New Echota Historic Site near Calhoun.

For more information, please feel free to call Jack Walker at 770-655-2595 or Jim Langford at 404-285-2001.

Directions: Take ext #288 (Cartersville, Main Street) off of I-75 and follow brown directional signs to Etowah Indian Mounds Museum about 5 miles southwest of Cartersville, Georgia.
