We have a great lineup of paper presentations scheduled for the morning session of the meeting. During a break between papers, an open house of the archaeology lab at Georgia Southern will be hosted for meeting attendees. Artifacts from various projects will be on display, and tours of the 3-D scanning and printing lab will also be offered.

After lunch, everyone is invited to reconvene at the site of Camp Lawton situated on the grounds of Magnolia Springs State Park near Millen, Georgia. We will visit the new Camp Lawton Discovery Center and receive a behind-the-scenes tour. Since 2009, Georgia Southern University has been conducting archaeological research at Camp Lawton—a Confederate stockade-style prison built during the Civil War. This fall marks the 150th anniversary of the opening of the prison in 1864.
