Recent Archaeology in Savannah

(Relatively) recent archaeological work in Savannah includes:

  • Savannah Under Fire 2007-2011,  archaeologists, supported by the NPS American Battlefield Protection Program, revealed Revolutionary War archaeological sites throughout downtown Savannah, Georgia.
  • May 2012: Distinguished panel discussed the benefits of an archaeology ordinance in Savannah. This article is from the Savannah Morning News (SMN).
  • The CSS Georgia, a Civil War-era ironclad, lies on the bottom of the Savannah River off Old Fort Jackson. When the Savannah Port proceeds with harbor deepening, this shipwreck will need to be taken into consideration. A history and more details are available in this SMN article.
  • Work continues at Camp Lawton, a Civil War POW camp outside Statesboro, GA.
