Please join us on Tuesday, December 4 at 7 PM for the monthly meeting of the Panhandle Archaeological Society at Tallahassee (PAST). In keeping with the Christmas holiday season, PAST’s December meeting lecture will be given by Dr. Bonnie McEwan, who will discuss the discovery and analysis of a rare Spanish Colonial crystal cross excavated from the Mission San Luis church remains. Believed to be evidence of Apalachee religious conversion and the adoption of Christianity by these indigenous Florida peoples, this and others artifacts, help tell an amazing story of 17th century Catholic proselytization in La Florida.
The meeting will be held at the B. Calvin Jones Center for Archaeology at the Governor Martin House. The Center is located off Lafayette Street, between Seminole Drive and Myers Park Drive at 1001 de Soto Park Drive.
