Archaeology students visit local dig

Armstrong students enrolled in archaeology and anthropology classes have been visiting an archaeology dig three miles south of the school. Archaeologists are excavating three historic sites: two plantations and one of General Sherman’s 1864 Civil War camps. More information on the site is available at Abercorn Archaeology and on their Facebook page.

The archaeology sites spread out around this amazing 400-year-old live oak tree.
