We will hold our next meeting on Tuesday, November 6, 2018, the first Tuesday of the month, at 7:00 p.m. 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. Reception begins at 6:30. We encourage you to bring a snack to share.

Please join us as we welcome Dr. Ramie Gougeon of the University of West Florida. He'll be discussing the prehistory of Pensacola Bay.

Understanding the prehistoric archaeology around Pensacola Bay is a work in progress. While the late prehistory of Pensacola Bay is usually described as being located at a cultural crossroads where the Pensacola culture and the Fort Walton culture overlap, new evidence suggests this interpretation is perhaps inadequate. In spite of decades of research in the region, we appear to be at the point where we have many more questions than answers. In this presentation, Dr. Ramie Gougeon (UWF) will highlight some of the questions being addressed through archaeological investigations on Pensacola Bay, some recent findings, and future directions.
