The Graduate Anthropology Association (GAA) from the University of West Florida (UWF) Anthropology Department will demonstrate how high tech equipment is used by archaeologists. Come by to see how and why archaeologists use technologies such as GPR (seen on many forensic television shows), soil resistivity, and the gradiometer. Visitors can also experience a low tech approach to archaeology: flintknapping. Watch or participate in experimental archaeology by trying your hand at knapping. Come by the UWF Cannon Green to learn about the science of archaeology!
