Florida Talks: Seeing Florida Heritage Through Archaeology with Dr. Uzi Baram

February 20, 2025 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

The history of Florida is fascinating, and archaeological research provides a tactile, visual, and place-based approach to appreciating what has been achieved. The aspects of the past that are in the present, that are being seen, used and visited by people today, are heritage. This presentation explores the dynamics of heritage by highlighting archaeological insights into Indigenous landscapes, colonial sites, utopian settlements, minority communities, and modern cities.

After 25 years of teaching at New College of Florida and creating its Public Archaeology Lab, Uzi Baram continues to engage in community-based archaeology and heritage interpretation through his consulting firm UB Heritage. For over twenty years Dr. Baram has partnered with community organizations and engaged a wide range of individuals and groups in using archaeology as heritage to animate the past and to offer positive possibilities for the future.

This program is part of East Lake Community Library’s Anthropology Day activities. Registration is required as space is limited. Funding for this Florida Talks program was provided through a grant from Florida Humanities with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in this program do not necessarily represent those of Florida Humanities or the National Endowment for the Humanities.
