The Dorion Dig, which took place on the south end of Amelia Island, uncovered the remains of dozens of Native Americans.
This Friday, September 17th, from 7:00 to 8:00 PM, in partnership with the Florida Public Archeology Network, the museum is very excited to welcome Dr. Rebecca Saunders, an Associate Professor in Geography and Anthropology and Curator of Anthropology at the Natural Science Museum at Louisiana State University.
Locally, she was the Site Supervisor for the Dorion Dig, which took place on the south end of Amelia Island between 1985 and 1990. This hugely important project uncovered the remains of dozens of Native Americans and the remnants of the 17th century Spanish mission, Santa Catalina. Come explore this amazing discovery with the archeologist who helped uncover it!
