Sip and Scholarship: Seeing Florida Heritage Through Archaeology

November 11 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 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 UBHeritage. For over 20 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. Currently, he is the Director of Public Archaeology at Marie Selby Botanical Gardens.

Registration is required and space is limited. Admission is $10/person and includes refreshments.

This Florida Talks program is a partnership between Florida Humanities and the Florida Council for History Education. Funding for this program was provided by Florida Humanities and sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Arts and Culture, the Florida Council on Arts and Culture, and the National Endowment for the Arts. Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in this program do not necessarily represent those of Florida Humanities or the aforementioned entities.
