Led by the Georgia Dept. of Natural Resources' Archaeology Division and the University of Georgia, this excavation near the former Buckhead Plantation site on Ossabaw Island, is serving as a Field School for UGA’s archaeology graduate and undergraduate students. Assist archaeologists excavating public and domestic architecture associated with a Late Mississippian Native American village, and will likely encounter historic period artifacts as well from the site being farmed in the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries. Techniques include excavation, remote sensing using ground penetrating radar, and labwork including rinsing, sorting and identifying artifacts.
