Florida's Statewide Organization of Archaeology and Anthropology
Florida history goes back over 10,000 years to people who hunted mammoth with stone-tipped spears.
Canoes were an important means of transportation for Florida natives. The oldest canoe that's been discovered in Florida was made approximately 6000 years ago.
Florida's rapid development puts many valuable sites in jeopardy. Amateur and professional archaeologists, elected officials and planners, and other concerned citizens are working together to save this history in the soil.
