Friends of Scull Shoals
They were following up on fieldwork done by a Georgia State University graduate student who had interned for Friends of Scull Shoals and had completed a GPR (ground-penetrating radar) survey of the site looking for the remains of Ft. Clarke, a fort dating to the late 1700s/early 1800s.

Georgia State students completed the excavation of a cold cellar (think early refrigerator) under one of the blockhouses at the fort.
They also excavated one of the trenches associated with the palisade around the fort. In the trench, adjacent to the blockhouse, they found a fairly intact plate, complete with the knife marks.
