The research goal of this dig is to demonstrate to those interested how an archaeological dig on a historic site is done. For more information please contact Vishi Garig at 904-371-0027 at [email protected] Ryan Harke at (904) 819-6498 or [email protected] Bring the family to this free event to hang out with archaeologists from FPAN and the Central Gulf Coast Archaeological Society and see if you could survive life in Prehistoric Florida!
Join the Florida Public Archaeology Network (FPAN) at the Weeden Island Preserve Cultural and Natural History Center on Saturday, March 1st from 10 A. The Florida Public Archaeology Network will host Dash Through the Past, a run/walk scavenger hunt race in downtown Pensacola in celebration of Florida Archaeology Month, on March 1 from 10 a.m. This is the first official event in Pensacola to celebrate Florida Archaeology Month throughout March.
We Were Here is a Viva Florida 500 traveling exhibition presented by the Lawrence E.
Will Museum: A Museum of the Belle Glades, and is being exhibited in regions where The People of the Water lived.
Originally developed for the on-site detection of metals and minerals, PXRF is a tool that uses targeted x-ray energy to detect an object’s elemental composition. The pilot spotted a large waterway below and ditched the plane at Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands.
We will examine the history and science behind PXRF and show real world examples of how this technology is used by archaeologists. Decades later, following several years of deepwater remote sensing investigations, the bomber was raised in September 1985.
“Setting Phasers to Stun: An Introduction to the science of Portable X-ray Fluorescence and its applications in archaeology” Increasingly archaeologists are finding ways to utilize portable x-ray fluorescence (PXRF). On New Year's Eve, 1940, a twin-engine Wellington bomber was on a training mission out of Lossiemouth, Scotland, when it lost power in one of its engines.However, most of these explanations are derived from investigations of specific sites without placing them within the broader landscape.This talk evaluates the role that shell rings played in the larger world of Late Archaic peoples by using both site specific, as well as larger regional environmental and archaeological data from Sapelo Island and the Georgia Coast.Archaeologists hunt down clues from the past using scientific methods to study what people's lives were like hundreds or thousands of years ago.Exciting research by archaeologists across Florida is shedding light on some of our state's earliest residents: the Paleoindians.
No experience is needed, but all volunteers are given a brief orientation by a professional archaeologist their first day!
