Ocmulgee Archaeological Society
We are a chapter of the Society for Georgia Archaeology. The Ocmulgee Archaeological Society was established in 2003
to serve the inhabitants of the greater Middle Georgia area. The purpose of the organization is educational and scienfic. The OAS is a chapter of the Society for Georgia Archaeology, whose purpose is "to unite all persons interested in the archeology of Georgia ad to work actively to preserve, study and interpret Georgia's historic and prehistoric remains."
Efforts of three men during the 1930s led to the establishment of Ocmulgee National Monument. Walter A. Harris, Dr. Charles C. Harrold and Linton M. Solomon also organized the Society for Georgia Archaeology during that time.
The OAS is involved in many activites including monthly meetings (guest speakers) and archeological projects.
We have assisted the National Park Service and local governments by conducting archeological surveys, located unmarked burials for a church and travel into middle Georgia communities to provide educational services.
Frontiers in the Soil, a long-time resource for educators, is available from the Society for Georgia Archaeology.
