Field Trip to Underwater Archaeology Field Station

Armstrong students taking the class “Archaeology of the Southeast” visited the Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Coastal Georgia Underwater Archaeology Field Station this week. The office of the State Deputy Archaeologist is located here rather than in the Historic Preservation Division’s Archaeological Services Unit in Atlanta. Huge thanks to Chris McCabe, the Deputy Archaeologist, who was our host and guide.
