George S. Lewis, a very active member of the Augusta Archaeological Society and the Society for Georgia Archaeology, wrote a history of the AAS in July 1989. Titled “A Brief History of the Augusta Archaeological Society,” this document is now available in PDF form.

In the process of assembling this history of the AAS, then about twenty years old, George also records some of the history of archaeological research of all kinds in the Augusta area.

The seven appendices provide a wealth of useful information, from membership lists to the program for the SGA’s fall meeting in 1976, and more.
