The Apalachicola Ecosystems Project

2006 and 2007 Archaeological Fieldwork

Archaeologists from the University of West Georgia, Northern Kentucky University, and Columbus State University (Georgia) teamed together to begin archaeological investigations at the Talwa Thlucco Apalachicola in eastern Alabama.  Our 2006 and 2007 field seasons were designed to define the boundaries of the early eighteenth and late eighteenth century towns. 

Apalachicola was the ancient homeland of the Hitchiti speaking Apalachicola people.  It was also a capitol and important sacred ground to these Native Americans.  Our research is the first intensive archaeological investigations at the sites.   We conducted shovel testing, remote sensing, interviewed local informants, documentary research, test unit excavation, and reconnaissance.
