REMEMBER: Don't dig alone. Only artifacts removed from the ground in a professional and scientific manner have value. Amateurs interested in working on annual "digs" should contact USM or the Shoals Marine Lab.Arfiacts are more value under the earth than when removed causually. If you accidentally uncover an artifact -- contact your local hsitorical society or university archaeology dept.
