Why we conserve artifacts, the CSS Georgia Story.
Author(s): Jim Jobling
As part of the Savannah Harbor Expansion Project, the USACE, Savannah District, tasked Panamerican Consultants with archaeologically recording and systematically recovering the artifacts from the wreck of the CSS Georgia. More than 125 tons of material was recovered, which created a few interesting challenges for the field crew and the Conservation Research Lab. What artifacts does one conserve, and what do we document and rebury. This paper presents a number of ways that a well-equipped facility can help the field archaeologist, in documenting and recording a large artifact assemblage.
