Panhandle Archaeological Society at Tallahassee (PAST)
Event Dates and Times
B. Calvin Jones Center for Archaeology at the Gov. Martin House
Join us as Morgan Smith presents “Past, Present, and Future plans for Research of the Bone Room in Wakulla Springs.” Wakulla Spring has a rich history of scientific research and exploration. In this history, most of the diving within the spring has concentrated on the exploration of the cave system, hydrologic studies, or biological sampling. The archaeology of the spring has remained a footnote in most of these project reports. As such, the archaeological resources of the spring remain enigmatic. Future research in Wakulla Spring should involve an archaeological documentation, survey, and inventory of the unrecorded cultural material in the cave, spring basin, and spring run, and should produce a full report detailing the archaeological resources of Wakulla Spring. This information could enhance public knowledge and respect for the spring, and could provide data vital to augmenting current archaeological theories concerning this region. PAST meetings are at the B. Calvin Jones Center for Archaeology at the Gov. Martin House, 1001 De Soto Park Dr., Tallahassee. De Soto Park Dr. is off Lafayette St. between Seminole Dr. and Myers Park Dr. Look for the PAST sign on Lafayette St. on the evening of the meeting.
