In Pursuit of Florida’s Paleo Hunters


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 archaeologists 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.


This event is funded by the Florida Humanities Florida Talks program, in partnership with the Historic Hernando Preservation Society.
