Tales of the Tour: Visiting the Sites of the Conservancy’s Peoples of the Lower Mississippi Valley Tour
The Archaeological Conservancy’s southeastern preserves range from some of the earliest mound sites in North America to historic plantations. Some of these sites remain Conservancy properties and others are now part of public parks and lands. In this upcoming lecture, Southeast Regional Director Jessica Crawford will revisit past tours of some of these sites and discuss how each preserve contributes to the broader archaeological knowledge of the Lower Mississippi Valley.
Jessica Crawford has been The Archaeological Conservancy’s Southeast Regional Director for 15 years and is responsible for managing sites across eight southeastern states. This includes overseeing research projects and site preservation measures, processing and finalizing new acquisitions, and working with state and federal governments to incorporate Conservancy properties into parks and other public lands. She attended the University of Mississippi where she received a BA in English and an MA in Anthropology. She currently resides near Marks, Mississippi.
This lecture series is sponsored by The Archaeological Conservancy. It is free to members of the Conservancy and the general public.
