In Pursuit of Florida’s Paleo Hunters
In this program Pursuit of Florida’s Paleo Hunters you can travel back into the last Ice Age and learn about Florida’s first people. Discover how they survived climate change and giant predators. Who were the archeologis that discovered these early hunters’ artifact sites? We will compare the artifacts found here in Florida to those found around North America. Were there people living here before the Clovis Tradition and what is the Solutrean Theory? What was their origin? These controversies will be examined, and actual Paleoindian artifacts studied. Our 2021 Coffee and Conversations speaker series is funded by the Florida Humanities. The Florida Humanities is an amazing organization that support efforts throughout the state to bring artistic, cultural, and historical programming to local communities. Funding for Florida Humanities comes from the National Endowment for the Humanities and private donations.
