Community participates in Brockington and The History Workshop’s Georgia Archaeology Month Event

Brockington and The History Workshop led an exciting discussion about Creative Mitigation and Site Destruction. Participants developed their own exhibit themes based on the below artifacts. The themes were: time travel, trade, the life cycle of a site and status symbols. Attendees addressed questions, such as: What themes would you develop? How would you arrange these artifacts to best express a specific theme?

Archaeology is an inherently destructive process however, there is much to learn from excavation. The knowledge gained through this careful process is used to better understand peoples and cultures.  The History Workshop uses information gleamed from Brockington’s archaeologists and historians to develop engaging public exhibits. We had fun discussing our experiences with participants and working with them to develop a truly unique exhibit!
