Artifacts found at the Singer-Moye field site

Today, through August 4, join us in celebrating this year’s appreciation of archaeology in the state of Georgia. Here at UGA the work is always intense. On a typical day, archaeologists at the Laboratory of Archaeology and Georgia Archaeological Site File are busy doing research, training students, preserving and curating artifacts, and sharing information about the important pieces of Georgia history in their care. They curate 11,000 boxes of artifacts and field records, which means that a normal day at the lab involves many people working on a variety of different tasks “to keep the party going” says Laboratory of Archaeology Director Mark Williams. A list of the lab’s priorities include

  • professional research
  • graduate research
  • experiential learning
  • undergraduate training
  • the Georgia Archaeological Site File
  • collections and curation
  • public outreach
