This monograph represents a consolidation of material relating to archaeological research and findings contained in the author's earlier works on the history of Sapelo Island and McIntosh County, Georgia, in particular Early Days on the Georgia Tidewater: A New Revised Edition (2018), Environmental Influences on Life & Labor in McIntosh County, Georgia (2018), and Sapelo: People and Place on a Georgia Sea Island (2017). Additional new material not found in those volumes has been added to the present text to provide greater elaboration on archaeological field work at the Fort King George site near Darien in the 1950s and 1960s, and at the Harris Neck National Wildlife Refuge. The path-breaking work of Clarence Bloomfield Moore, who conducted the first systematic archaeological field work with attendant academic rigor in what is now McIntosh County has been amplified considerably. While this study is not considered to be definitive, it nonetheless is offered as an overview of the field research of archaeologists and historians from the late nineteenth century to the early twenty-first relating to investigations of pre-Columbian and Spanish sites, most specifically at Sapelo and Creighton islands, and Fort King George. In essence then, this may be considered a "layman's guide" to local archaeology.
