Thomas' visit and Signature Lecture was designed to commemorate the transfer of a major trove of artifacts to the UGA Laboratory of Archeology recovered by Thomas and his team on St. Catherines Island. This collection itself and what it implies about Georgia's past underscores this truism shared by Thomas:  "It's not what you find," Thomas…
