The Historical Archaeology of the Sunshine State
November 3, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The history of Florida is fascinating, and archaeological research provides a tactile, visual, and place-based approach to appreciating what people have achieved and understand heritage beneath the ground. Spanning the last five centuries, the presentation highlights colonial sites, utopian settlements, minority communities, and modern cities to encourage preservation efforts and engagement with heritage organizations and locations. Admission and parking are free, no registration required. Entrance through Gate 3 at Hammock Hall.
Uzi Baram is a Professor of Anthology and founding Director of the Public Archaeology Lab at New College of Florida. His recent projects focus on the recovery of an early 19th-century maroon community, heritage interpretations for a county park, and building community resilience through heritage in an age of rising sea levels. His current book is Historical Archaeology of the Sunshine State. This Florida Talks program is a partnership between Florida Humanities and the Pinellas Pioneer Settlement. 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.
