Celebrate National Archaeology Day at the Manatee Settlement
September 13, 2012
As part of National Archaeology Day, Manatee Mineral Springs is hosting a community event to celebrate the original village of Manatee, and the site’s archaeological and historical heritage. Reflections of Manatee, Inc., the site’s non-profit owners, are sponsoring a community picnic to celebrate pioneer foods, with games and activities centered on Florida’s Native Americans or early Anglo-American settlers. There will also be a presentation by Dr. Uzi Baram of New College of Florida on the excavations conducted at the site.
More Collaborating Organizations have joined us for International Archaeology Day 2014!
We are so excited to be celebrating International Archaeology Day again this year on October 18, 2014 to raise awareness for archaeology and provide opportunities for the public to participate in archaeological activities.
In preparation for IAD 2014, we just set up a new webpage with precomposed e-mail invitations that you can easily send to your contacts.
