Seven Islands Artifact ID Day September 26

The public is invited to bring their artifacts to be identified and dated by members of the Ocmulgee Archaeological Society. Archaeologist Stephen Hammack, Historian Sam Lawson, and other members of the Ocmulgee Archaeological Society will be on hand to identify Indian Artifacts from all periods and historic artifacts from the earliest days of settlement.

Of special note, Georgia Paleo-Indian Recordation Project Coordinator Jerald Ledbetter and John Whatley, author of “An Overview of Georgia Projectile Points and Selected Cutting Tools,” will be on hand to identify and record Clovis, Dalton, and other early projectile points.

There will be several collections on display, flint napping demonstrations by Dave Swetmon, and atl-atl, primitive weapons and friction fire demonstrations by Ken Ruff. Also this year we will have “PICKING ON THE PORCH,” so come out and join in the acoustic jam on the back porch.
