Unearth the hidden treasures of historical and ancient Florida archaeologists from the Florida Public Archaeology Network (FPAN) this summer at the library.
What’s the best way to learn about a person, whether they lived thousands of years ago or today? Look through their garbage of course! Archaeologists study prehistoric trash piles or middens to gain a wealth of information about the past. They also investigate purpose built mounds that still dot the Florida landscape to learn about prehistoric societies. Learn how Native Americans in Florida built a better world in this fun and hands-on program.
