The South Georgia Archaeological Research Team, SOGART, a Chapter of the SGA, is sponsoring the 2012 Symposium on Southeastern Coastal Plain Archaeology, to be held Saturday, August 18th, in Stubbs Hall Auditorium on the South Georgia College campus in Douglas (see map below).
Registration is free, and will begin at 8:00AM. Papers are scheduled for all day, with morning and afternoon breaks to socialize, plus a lunch break.
Paper topics should appeal to anyone interested in Georgia archaeology. They range from SGA Board Member Kevin Kiernan’s presentation, “The Tabby Ruins of the Evelyn Plantation House in Glynn County, Georgia,” to Fred Cook’s presentation, “Experiments in Acorn and Tuber Collecting and Processing,” to SGA Board Member Don Thieme’s “Ground-Penetrating Radar Investigations at the Dixon-Rainey Cemetery site”—and more! You can also hear UGA graduate student Stefan Brannan discuss the results of the 2012 UGA Field School research (yes, this summer!) at the Singer-Moye Mississippian-period multi-mound-and-village community (recently visited by the Greater Atlanta Chapter of the SGA).
