Submitted by Allen Vegostsky (vegotsky@earthlink.net)

I am very pleased to invite you to the February 14th GAAS meeting at which Tammy Herron of the Savannah River Archaeological Research Program (SRARP) will be the guest speaker. Tammy will discuss her research on colonial sites in Aiken County, South Carolina and also some of the programs of the Society for Georgia Archaeology (SGA).

Ms. Herron was raised in the small Georgia town of Hiltonia and emphasized anthropology, archaeology, and psychology in her undergraduate work at Georgia Southern University. Most of her professional career has consisted of laboratory and field work with the SRARP where she is currently the Curator. In addition to her work as Curator, she has been active in several excavations in the area of Beech Island, South Carolina. On February 14th, she will touch on some of this work and also on recent events of the SGA and preview things to come. It will be an exciting illustrated program!

Tammy Herron is Vice President-President Elect of the SGA. She is also active in the Archaeological Society of South Carolina, the Augusta Archaeological Society, the Society for Historical Archaeology, the United Daughters of the Confederacy, and much more. She is married, has two daughters, and they live in North Augusta, South Carolina.

 Logistics: The presentation will begin about 7:30 PM on Tuesday, Feb. 14th, at the Fernbank Museum of Natural History (Clifton Road, just north of Ponce de Leon). If you would like to join the speaker for dinner before the meeting, we will be gathering about 5:30 PM at Athen’s Pizza on Clairmont Road, about 1/4 mile north of N. Decatur Road.
