Are you looking for a terrific book to introduce you to archaeology in Georgia—one that’s perfect for folks of every age? Read Frontiers in the Soil by the late archaeologist Roy S. Dickens, Jr., available only from the SGA! (Here’s a link to the order form.)
Dickens’ text is easy to read and you’ll enjoy wonderful color cartoon illustrations by James L. McKinley. Dickens describes archaeological methods and ethics through the lens of young archaeologists working on a excavation project that uncovers a Mississippian-period village. The story moves to the laboratory where researchers begin to tell the story of the people who once lived in the village based on fragments of broken ceramic pots and other artifacts.
The SGA recommends Frontiers in the Soil to anyone interested in Georgia’s archaeological heritage. The volume has over 100 pages, and the cartoons offer insightful details.
