We are thrilled to host the seventh annual Seven Islands Artifacts ID Day at the Indian Spring Hotel/Museum.   This event has become the Ocmulgee Archaeological Society's largest Artifact ID Day in Georgia, with over 200 people bringing artifacts to be identified last year, some dating back to the Paleo Indian period which was 12,000 to 15,000 years ago.  The public is invited to bring their artifacts to be identified and dated by members of the Ocmulgee Archaeological Society.  Watch eight Archaeologist identify Indian artifacts from all periods and historic artifacts from the earliest days of settlement. Of special note, Georgia Paleoindian Recordation Project Coordinator Jerald Ledbetter and John Whatley, author of "An Overview of Georgia Projectile Points and Selected Cutting Tools," will be here to identify and record Clovis, Dalton, and other early projectile points. There will be several collections on display and flint-knapping demonstrations by Dave Swetmon.  For event information contact W.J. Shannon, 770-361-7185 or e-mail wjshannon123@bellsouth.net.
