Archaeology & Heritage
For three years,volunteers from across the US have worked on an archaeology site in the forest in northeast Georgia. Through this project, the Forest Service is trying to answer questions about who may have been living at this site in A.D. 1600-1615 and what they were doing here. Because of the rarity of sites dating to the seventeenth century, this work could provide important and significant information on a poorly known, but critical time in regional history.

This work is being conducted in cooperation with the firm Southern Research, and has also been supported by the Anthropology Department from the University of Georgia.

Passport in Time is a volunteer archaeology and historic preservation program of the Forest Service. The goal of PIT is to preserve the nation’s past with the help from the public. Forest Service archaeologists and historians take volunteers from across the nation on projects to restore prehistoric and historic sites.
