Overview

Position Description:
Fort Frederica National Monument, on Saint Simons Island, Georgia, preserves the archaeological remnants of a fort and town built by James Oglethorpe from 1736-1748 to protect the southern boundary of the British Colony from Spanish raids. At its peak in 1742 1000-1500 men, women, and children occupied the 40 acre town site. In 1742, the Spanish attacked the island and were driven back thereby fulfilling the forts and towns purpose. The park has a robust archeological education and living history program.

Fort Frederica NM is a small park with a robust archeological education program. Much of the programming includes active archeological investigation. Current investigations are underway at a house site within the town known as the Sinclair House. Excavations began in 2020. There is a reasonable sized collection, approximately 50 boxes of material that needs to be cataloged into the park’s database. This internship will not only help reduce backlog but bring standard workflows and cataloging practices into the archeological education program.
