Saving an Island’s History

There’s a spot in Georgia where students and researchers can look back at life in our state from prehistory through the 1930s. The site, on Ossabaw Island, about 20 miles south of Savannah, contains the remnants of a prehistoric village, an antebellum plantation and a 1930s tenant farmer’s home. With signs of human occupation dating back 4,500 years, the site offers exposure to a wide range of archaeological features and techniques. The Historic Preservation Division of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and Dr. Victor Thompson of the University of Georgia just wrapped up a summer archaeological field school on the island.

Take a New Look at Downtown Atlanta

Been a while since you’ve gone to downtown Atlanta? You might be surprised with what you’ll now find. With the opening in June of the National Center for Civil and Human Rights and the re-opening of the Polaris restaurant in Atlanta, the area is booming with attractions, and summer’s a perfect time to take it all in. Grab the whole family and make a day – or two – of being a downtown tourist. Start at SkyView, Atlanta’s new Ferris wheel. From up top you can see all of downtown and a good bit of the surrounding metro area. From there, stroll over to Pemberton Place – you’ll see it from SkyView – where the Center for Civil and Human Rights is located alongside the World of Coke and the Georgia Aquarium. End your day...
