Archaeologist Stephen Hammack and several other members of the Ocmulgee Archaeological Society will be on hand to identify Indian artifacts from all periods and any historical artifacts from the earliest days of the settlement. Of special note, John Whatley, author of “An Overview of Georgia Projectile Points and Selected Cutting Tools” will be on hand to identify and record Clovis or other early projectiles.
