Fort Frederica and the nearby town were built by James Oglethorpe between 1736 and 1748 to protect the southern boundary of the British colony of Georgia from Spanish raids. This archaeological remnant is taken out of its natural surroundings and placed firmly on a flat ground with dramatic stage lighting casting deep shadows in the background.
