Gwinnett Archaeological Research Society (GARS) meets on the third Tuesday of each month at Fort Daniel Archaeological Site (2505 Braselton Hwy, Buford, GA). Beginning at 7pm, the monthly meetings consist of a short business meeting and special presentations on various subjects from recent archaeological investigations to historical sites.

The next in-person Gwinnett Archaeological Research Society (GARS) meeting will be soon. More details  are coming!

Keep an eye on the GARS Facebook page for upcoming meetings. 


Gwinnett Archaeological Research Society educates the public about the local archaeological resources and advocates the preservation of these sites.

There are several projects in the works, which might include returning to previous archaeological projects: Graves Soapstone and Fort Peachtree! However, keep checking this page or GARS Facebook page for updates. Below is a list of some projects:

  • Snellville Site: An opportunity has come up to perform an archaeological investigation on private property located in Snellville on Saturday, March 9. If you are interested in participating, please email GARS by Wednesday, March 6. More in-depth details will be emailed to those who are interested. (Since this is on private property, GARS would like to maintain the privacy of the property owner and the site.)
  • Poole Mountain Site: Another archaeological investigation at the Poole Mountain Site is in the works! If you are interested in this project, email GARS.
