 Georgia State MARTA Project

GSU's study of artifacts found at the MARTA rail construction site in the 70s

For history buffs, here is a different take with MARTA archeology: (from the GSU website) Downtown Atlanta isn’t exactly known for its archaeological significance, but a group of anthropology students is discovering treasure here nonetheless.

Georgia State University’s Department of Anthropology recently took possession of the MARTA collection, an enormous trove of artifacts dug up during the mass transit system’s construction more than 30 years ago.

Former Georgia State professor of anthropology Roy Dickens oversaw the MARTA excavations, which occurred at more than 30 sites throughout Atlanta, and took the collection with him when he moved to the University of North Carolina.See More
