Congratulations to Emily McGann, winner of the Louis D. Tesar Historic Preservation Essay Contest!  Emily presented her findings at our May, 2018 meeting.  She hopes to have her research considered for publication in Florida Anthropologist.

PAST is conducting work at Goodwood Museum and Gardens.  Work is focused on Cline’s Cottage, which was the home of a tenant farmer who once lived on the grounds.

If you missed BAR’s Canoes and Archaeology event, you can still catch it on the Florida Division of Historical Resource’s Facebook page!  The Hurricane Irma canoe provided great opportunities to conduct scientific research on this enigma of a dugout.
