Thank you to everyone who joined the live event on October 28. There were some technical issues with the audio, so Jessica recorded a new version which can be viewed below. Because of this, the question and answer portion is not included. We regret the inconvenience.
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.
