Archaeology Walking Tours this Fall

Digging Savannah will be offering three public walking tours this fall.

Sept 21- Skidaway Island Guided Hike

Spanning more than 5,000 years of history and prehistory, the park’s archaeology sites give us the opportunity to trace Skidaway Island’s past from Native Americans to moonshiners. AASU archaeology professor Laura Seifert will lead the hike, which starts at the Big Ferry Trail head.

The hike is $10 per person (this includes your park pass) or free for Friends of Georgia State Parks members. Buy tickets here.

Savannah is famous for its beautiful historic downtown, but the ground beneath your feet is just as historic. Learn about the unseen and forgotten archaeology sites. AASU archaeology professor Laura Seifert will lead the tour, which starts at the flagpole at Battlefield Park (next the railroad museum) at 4pm. The tour is free and open to the public. Please RSVP to diggingsavannah@gmail.com or via the Facebook event site.
