Welcome to the online archive of the Phoenix Project.

Here you will find archeological materials excavated by the Georgia State University's MARTA Archeological Project in the late 1970s. In 2009, the materials were returned to GSU and the Phoenix Project started to reorganize and revive the project.

The collection contains 500 boxes of over 100,000 items. Here we have curated mostly intact items that can be roughly dated and reflect Atlanta's material history from around 1850-1950.
