Armstrong Archaeology students, Anthropology Club members, and Digging Savannah professors had the great privilege of touring St. Catherines’ Island yesterday with archaeologist David Hurst Thomas. Dr. Thomas has been working on St. Catherines’ for nearly 40 years investigating Native American prehistory and the Spanish Colonial mission founded in the late 1500s.
A huge thanks goes to Dr. Thomas and the rest of the archaeologists (and ornithologists) for their hospitality!
