Georgia Archaeology Month: Technologies in Archaeology and GIS
May is Archaeology Month in Georgia!
Our theme for Archaeology Month this year is “Technologies in Archaeology.” The events of the last year have demonstrated the importance of technologies in keeping us connected. We want to spotlight the different ways that technologies have been used to interpret Georgia’s past, and the archaeologists doing the research to bring us these interpretations.
In addition to highlighting events across the state celebrating Archaeology Month, we’ll be sharing archaeological research projects in Georgia that utilize different technologies. To kick us off, we’d like to introduce the work of archaeologist and SGA Board Member, Dr. Lindsey Cochran!
