Archaeology in Florida\'s State Parks

New Smyrna Museum of History 120 Sams Ave

March 23, 11:00:00 AM — 12:00:00 PM

When people first realize archaeology happens in Florida, it often surprises them to hear of how many active permits are issued to do work in state parks. Some of the digs are by field school where students learn the ABCs of excavation, while other digs are done in advance of construction or improvements to a park. This lecture emphasizes visitation of the many parks that feature archaeology interpreted for the public including Ft. Mose, Hontoon Island, Crystal River, Bulow Sugar Mill, Ft. Clinch, De Leon Springs, and many more.

Archaeology Along the St. Johns River

Mims-Scottsmoor Public Library 3615 Lionel Road Mims, FL 32754

March 23, 06:30:00 PM — 07:30:00 PM

The St. Johns River has played an ever-changing role in the lives of Floridians for thousands of years. Prehistorically, the river provided food, transportation, and a geographic connection between cultures living from the source to the mouth. Historically, the river supported missions, plantations, and military outposts. Exploration is not limited to land; famous archaeological sites on the river\'s bottom add to our knowledge of Florida\'s past.
