Take time out from eating stone crabs and join the National Park Service’s Southeast Archeological Center (SEAC) and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s State Parks in celebrating International Archaeology Day, October 27, 2018, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at San Marcos de Apalache Historic State Park, St. Marks, Florida. Come learn about the history and culture of the panhandle region as we celebrate local and national efforts to preserve, protect, and interpret the stories of the past for future generations.
This is a family friendly (and free) event that will be interesting for all ages! It coincides with the City of St. Marks’ annual Stone Crab Festival. So enjoy the festivities in St. Marks, then come on over to the park and learn about archeology.
SEAC is pleased to be working with Florida State Parks, which manages and interprets San Marcos de Apalache Historic State Park. The park consists of several earthen works including a Confederate Magazine and a museum.
International Archaeology Day was initiated by the Archaeological Institute of America to help raise awareness about archaeology. This marks the fifth year that the National Park Service and Florida State Parks have partnered for this International Archaeology Day event.
