Evening at Skidaway
The University of Georgia Skidaway Institute of Oceanography will kick off its 2023 Evening @ Skidaway speaker series on Tuesday, Jan. 24, with a program on underwater archaeology. The talk will be the first of 12 Evening @ Skidaway programs to be presented on a monthly basis through December.
The talk by UGA archaeologists Ervan Garrison and Kelly Cronin is titled “Underwater Roadcuts: Windows into Prehistory.”
“Underwater roadcuts are formed by daily seafloor currents that erode deep scour pits around structures found there - such as wrecks and artificial reefs,” Garrison said. “We will discuss our work to find these “roadcuts” on the seafloor off Georgia and to examine them for any evidence - paleontological or archaeological - for when the now-drowned seafloor was a vast coastal plain during the last ice age.”
The program will be presented to an in-person audience as well as on-line. Evening @ Skidaway program will be presented in the McGowan Library on the UGA Skidaway Marine Science Campus. (10 Ocean Science Circle, Savannah, GA 31411) The evening will begin with a reception at 6:30 p.m., followed by the talk at 7 p.m.
