Crews working hard in the vaults on Drayton Street downtown Savannah.
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -
Scouts got a chance to dig into some of Savannah's history Saturday.
Students from local elementary, middle and high schools all participated in a "Scout Work Day" at the Cluskey Embankment Stores on Drayton Street Saturday as part of an archaeology project.
The Georgia Southern archaeology team assisted the students in the excavation. This project began in November 2012 when archeologists from Georgia Southern University wanted to explore the brick vaults at the Cluskey Embankment Stores.
The vaults are considered architecturally significant, and were included as contributing structures in the Historic District's National Historic Landmark designation in 1966, and National Register of Historic Places designation in 1969.
Saturday was the final work day which allowed the public to participate in the dig.
