The Ocmulgee Archaeological Society was established in 2003 to serve the greater Middle Georgia area in an educational and scientific manner to preserve our archaeological resources. We are a chapter of the Society for Georgia Archaeology whose purpose is "to unite all persons interested in the archaeology of Georgia and to work actively to preserve, study, and interpret Georgia's historic and prehistoric remains."
Efforts of three men during the 1930s led to the establishment of Ocmulgee National Monument. Walter A. Harris, Dr. Charles C. Harrold and Linton M. Solomon also organized the Society for Georgia Archaeology during that time.
The OAS is involved in many activites including monthly meetings (guest speakers) and archeological projects.
We have assisted the National Park Service and local governments by conducting archeological surveys, located unmarked burials for a church and travel into middle Georgia communities to provide educational services.
