Culturally La Florida Lecture:In Search of the 16th Century in St. Aug

Time: 11:00 am til 12:00 pm

Location: St. Augustine Lighthouse & Museum

Description: "In Search of the 16th Century In St. Augustine"
Sarah E. Miller, Florida Public Archaeology Network

Walking the streets of St. Augustine can confuse the visitor in search of the 16th century, but 500 year old sites are there—often beneath their feet. This presentation will synthesize work done by archaeologists over the past century, focus on small objects that bring ordinary people in the 16th century to life, and touch on the public benefit of the city’s twenty year old archaeological ordinance. Those planning to partake in the city's 450th birthday party in 2015 can take home a walking tour map developed by our very own city archaeologist, Carl Halbirt.

This event is free and open to the public.
