Florida Public Archaeology Network (FPAN)

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.
