Sip of Science no. 006

Wednesday, December 14, 2016 at 6:30pm

What's on tap:

Mallory Fenn, Florida Public Archaeology Network, Experimental Archaeology and Toolmaking in Ancient South Florida

"No State in the Union has a more historic background than Florida. [...] It has played its part in all the major events which shaped the course of our country. Few people realize this and few people know the locations of the spots where Florida's part in these events was played." - Historic Florida WPA Site Survey report, published 1933

Much like the South Florida we know today, South Florida prior to the arrival of Europeans was a unique and dynamic place. During its lengthy timeframe of human occupation, people of precontact South Florida used the natural resources around them to make tools perfectly adapted to life in its various ecosystems. Learn about how archaeologists analyze the artifacts they find and explore some of South Florida's oldest archaeological sites through virtual reality!
