Built by the Society for Georgia Archaeology (SGA), the ArchaeoBus is a retrofitted bookmobile furnished for archaeologists to lead educational programs. The ArchaeoBus travels throughout the state to school groups, scout meetings, teacher workshops and touring the State Fair.

The SGA sees the ArchaeoBus as a way to reach the Society’s mission, which is to unite all persons interested in the archaeology of Georgia, and to work actively to preserve, study, and interpret Georgia’s human past.

In addition to the ArchaeoBus, the Armstrong Anthropology Club will have tables set up for educational crafts, including Buddhist Mandala sand paintings, Alutiiq animal mask making, rock art designing, and Native American beaded jewelry creating.
