Life and Death at WindoverThe Amelia Island Museum of History invites you to its next 3rd on 3rd Street Presentation by Dr. Rachel Wentz on June 15th, at 6 p.m.

Dr. Wentz will be discussing her new book Life and Death at Windover: Excavations of a 7,000 Year Old Pond Cemetery.

Windover is an archealogical site near Titusville, Florida, which has produced remains from at least 160 individuals, providing a valuable window to the people of Florida’s Archaic period.

In her book, Dr. Wentz tells us two stories: one is of the people who are interred in the pond, while the other is of the excavation itself, and the individuals who made it possible.

Dr. Rachel K. Wentz obtained her PhD in Anthropology from Florida State University, where she has taught courses in physical anthropology, human osteology, and forensic anthropology. She is also the Director of the Florida Public Archaeology Network (FPAN) East Central Region, and serves on the Brevard County Historical Commission.

Admission is free for museum members with a suggested donation of $10.00 for non-members. For more information contact Gray at 261-7378 ext. 102.
