Post-Conference Tours

Tour 1:  Exploring Etowah Indian Mounds

There will be a day tour to the Mississippian period (A.D. 1000 – 1550)  Etowah Indian Mound site and the near-by Tellus Science Center led by Dr. Adam King of the University of South Carolina.  A bus will depart GSU in the morning and return later in the afternoon.  Etowah is about 1.5 hours north of Atlanta and a lunch will be provided.  Price will include transportation, box lunch, entrance to the site and museum.

Tour 2: Exploring Georgia’s Golden Isles

The second tour will be a one or two night (options exist for both) trip to the Georgia Coast. A tentative schedule for both options is posted below.  Once we have a head-count, we can make firmer plans.  Price will include transportation (rental vans + gas) and hotels, but not meals.  Dr. Tom Whitley, who has worked on the coast for many years, will be joining this tour.  If you are interested in this option, please email jglover@gsu.edu as soon as possible.  Space is limited.
