This report summarizes the results of the archaeological investigations, conducted as archaeological field schools through the University of West Georgia, at two prehistoric Native American sites located at the mouth of the Savannah River, 21km from the Atlantic Ocean. These projects were undertaken with two interconnected goals. As part of the undergraduate curriculum for anthropology majors, student training in basic archaeological field methods was seen as an important component. Only through directed fieldwork can students achieve an understanding of the processes involved in the discovery, recovery, and interpretation of new information. The archaeological sites themselves, however, were of paramount importance and the field research was designed to address basic questions about the archaeological record of each site. The training of undergraduate students, both in the field and in the laboratory, was simply one element of the research design.
