It could be buried treasure, but it's staying buried at Fort Pulaski. At least for now. The National Park Service and the Georgia Department of Transportation are conducting "ground penetrating radar surveys." They say old ditches and old foundations of four other buildings are underground.
And even if they can find them, they plan to leave them just as they are. "Unless we discover something unexpected, we will leave them in place because our number one priority is to preserve the archeological resources," said archeologist Dr. Guy Prentice.
Dr. Prentice says this is just one of several archeological surveys that have been conducted in the past ten years.
