Event Details

The GTM Research Reserve, in conjunction with the Florida Public Archaeology Network, will celebrate National Archaeology Day with a special event at the GTM Environmental Education Center. Visitors can enjoy a guided trail hike that will highlight cultural history, learn about archaeology in Northeast Florida and test their own archaeological skills during the Archaeolympics. The event is on Saturday, October 20th. The guided trail hike is at 9 a.m. and the festivities are from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

At 11 a.m. in the auditorium, Sarah Miller, Director of the Northeast Region of the Florida Public Archaeology Network will discuss the basics of archaeology in a presentation entitled “Fantastic Archaeology: Florida Frauds, Myths, and Mysteries.” She will focus on the misuse and abuse of Florida’s past as well as discuss a few unsolved mysteries.


The GTM Research Reserve will also unveil a new display in the exhibit hall that features information on native peoples who lived on the Guana Peninsula and a collection of their ceramics. The artifacts were collected on the peninsula during the 1950s by William Evenden and Fred Williams and donated to the State of Florida in 2005.
