Alabama

Alabama Archaeological Society’s Winter Meeting
At 4pm, the featured speaker will be Mr. Steven Meredith, who will be discussing “Paleoindian Discoveries in the Alabama Coastal Plain.” Mr. Meredith’s presentation is a summary of his research based on the study of collections and the archaeological record. This database includes scores of fluted points from more than twenty Alabama counties - the majority of which were found by avocational archaeologists (collectors). It has been only through their efforts in collection and documentation that there is now a sample large enough to suggest interpretations of some aspects of life in Alabama 12,000 years ago.
    Other presentation topics throughout the day include:
   “Archaeological Research in Downtown Tuscaloosa”
   “Evaluating Paleoindian Migration and Settlement Models: Implications for Clovis in Alabama”
   “An Analysis of Near-Mound Cemeteries at Moundville
   “The On-going Project to Repair the Omussee Mound Near Dothan”
   “Preliminary Findings from the Tim Baker Site in Morgan County"
   “The Archaeology of Camp Lawton: The World's Largest Prison”
   “Excavations of the Creek Indian Factory (1RU512) at Fort Mitchell”
   “Kolomoki State Park in Early County, GA”
   “The Conservation of Canoes”
   “Using Historic Research, Tombstone Research, and Genealogy to Inform Archaeological Research”
Landmark Park, Dothan, Alabama
