Archaeology Along the St Johns

The St. Johns River has played an ever changing role in the lives of northeast Floridians for thousands of years.

Archaeology Along the St Johns“Archaeology along the St. Johns River” is this month’s Third Friday on Third Street presentation by the Amelia Island Museum of History.

The St. Johns River has played an ever changing role in the lives of northeast Floridians for thousands of years. Prehistorically, the river provided food, transportation, and a geographic connection between people living from the source to the mouth. Historically, the river supported missions, plantations, and military outposts. Exploration is not limited to land; famous archaeological sites on the river’s bottom also have been discovered and add to our knowledge of Florida’s past. Join us as we learn more about the history along the St. Johns River!

December 17th’s presentation features Sarah Miller of the Florida Public Archeology Network at 7:00 PM.
