Georgia Archives says
Explore Georgia history at the Georgia Archives on Saturday July 23, when we will host a children’s program on Archaeology.
The program will begin at 10:00am with Pamela Baughman, an archaeologist who works for the Georgia Department of Transportation. She will give a presentation on archaeology in Georgia and how she does her job at GDOT. The program will feature hands-on activities to interest children.
At 11:00am, Susan Rosson Spain will talk about her book Twelve Days of Christmas in Georgia. Jacob is visiting his cousin Ava, and together they'll have a Southern-style holiday exploring the Peach State and its history. Learn about the Georgia gold rush in Dahlonega, the Trail of Tears and Georgia’s role in the Civil Rights Movement.
After lunch, where pizza will be available for a donation to the Friends of Georgia Archives and History (FOGAH), visitors will be able to explore the ArchaeoBus, presented by the Society for Georgia Archaeology. Tour the bus, see its child-friendly exhibits, and work on archaeology puzzles and games.
In addition, don’t miss our early Georgia education exhibit, presented by the Georgia Archives and located in the exhibit hall behind the welcome desk. Exhibit opens the same day!
The program requires no registration and is free and open to the public. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
