Panhandle Archaeological Society at Tallahassee (PAST)

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

B. Calvin Jones Center for Archaeology at the Gov. Martin House
Join us on Tuesday, May 7 at 7:00 PM as Barbara Hines presents “Which Works Best – GPR or Human Remains Detecting Dogs?” In June 2012 archaeologists from FPAN North Central, the Southeast Archaeological Center/National Park Service and volunteers documented the historic Munree Cemetery located in eastern Leon County. In addition to using GPR, Human Remain Detection Canines were used to help identify areas containing unmarked burials. The dogs used for this project have been able to detect remains confirmed to be 650 years old. The program will include a canine demonstration and a presentation discussing the outcomes of this project. 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. Call 850.245.6444 for details.
