If you know the location of an archaeological site that you think may not be officially recorded in the Georgia Archaeological Site File, and you wish to have it recorded, please contact the Georgia Archaeological Site File at the University of Georgia in Athens. Recording archaeological sites is very important because the information that they contain, no matter how small the site is, enhances our understanding of Georgia's cultural heritage. Please note that reporting the location of an archaeological site does not mean someone will attempt to excavate the property with or without permission, or that future development plans for the property will be in danger.

You can find out about volunteering for archaeological digs by contacting a local or state-level archaeological organization. In most southern states, there are usually several excavations conducted each year that invite volunteers to participate.  In Georgia, volunteer efforts are enlisted via the Society for Georgia Archaeology, which has several local chapters.  The Passport in Time program sponsored by the U.S. Forest Service also sponsors volunteer excavations in Georgia and throughout the United States. Click the button to view a list of national, state, and local archaeological organizations where more specific information on this subject can be obtained.
