Long-time SGA member Jack Wynn suggests our members and friends may be interested in reading this story by Hannah Parson, “Students Unearth History and Mystery at the Duckett Site,” posted on The Steeple, the online student newspaper of for the University of North Georgia–Dahlonega and the Military College of Georgia.

So far, students—and members of the SGA Chapter Blue Ridge Archaeology Guild—have helped shovel test in a grid across the site area to understand variation across the settlement, and to analyze materials discovered and data recovered during the testing.

Our 2012 Spring Meeting included a presentation about the Duckett Site, of which Dr. Wynn was a co-author.

Our 2011 Fall Meeting program also included a presentation on field- and lab-work conducted in the spring of that year, by William H. Phillips.
