Two documentary films produced by LAMAR Institute detail Revolutionary War battlefield discoveries in Georgia and South Carolina.
Savannah, October 10, 2016. Two documenatry films by noted Savannah filmmakers Michael Jordan and Dan Kurtz will be showcased in the 2016 Arkhaios Cultural Heritage and Archaeology Film Festival on Hilton Head Island later this month. The films, “In Search of Carr’s Fort” and “Documenting the Battle of Purysburg” were both subsidized in part by a grant from the National Park Service’s American Battlefield Protection Program and the LAMAR Institute. The first film explores the search and discovery of Captain Robert Carr’s frontier fort in Wilkes County, Georgia and the second film explores the search and discovery for the battlefield in the Patriot headquarters at Purysburg in Jasper County, South Carolina. The Arkhaios festival is a juried show that features films from all over the world. The LAMAR Institute offerings demonstrate that archaeology exists in your own back yard.
