Panhandle Archaeological Society at Tallahassee (PAST)

Jan 8, 2013 7:00 - 8:00 PM

B. Calvin Jones Center for Archaeology at the Gov. Martin House
Join us as Julia Byrd, Senior Archaeologist, Bureau of Archaeological Research presents “Florida Prehistoric and Historic Canoes.” Florida is home to an unusually large concentration of dugout canoes. The earliest of these canoes is over 6,000 years old, and people continued making and using log boats through the historic period. We will explore the diversity of prehistoric and historic canoes and discuss patterns in the ways people made and used canoes throughout Florida’s history. 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.
