The Georgia Department of Natural Resources Historic Preservation Division (GA DNR HPD), in conjunction with Digital Antiquity, recently conducted a project to convert records of archaeological investigations on Sapelo Island, Georgia to a digital format and to curate these data in the Digital Archaeological Record (tDAR). Sapelo Island is one of Georgia's thirteen major barrier islands, with a diverse culture history ranging from Archaic Period American Indians to the present-day Geechee of Hog Hammock. While the State of Georgia maintains digital site files, these generally only contain site forms, field reports, and locational information for a given site. To supplement these records, GADNR HPD received grant funding to digitize additional records of archaeological investigations conducted on Sapelo Island. Access to background and supplemental data, provided via tDAR will make more information available to a wider audience and ensure long-term data preservation.
