International Archaeology Day Event at the St. Augustine Lighthouse
October 20, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm EDT
100 Red Cox Road
St Augustine, FL 32080 United States
Meet archaeologists at the St. Augustine Lighthouse & Maritime Museum on October 20 to discover history and mystery of local shipwrecks and honor International Archaeology Day.
From 10 AM to 2 PM, Lighthouse archaeologists will have a display of artifacts in the Maritime Archaeology and Education Center located on the museum site.
At 2 PM, join us for a presentation by Emily Jane Murray, archaeologist with the Florida Public Archaeology Network (FPAN) as she showcases discovery and preservation of the Heritage Monitoring Scouts program, an innovative initiative brought to us by FPAN. The title of the talk is “Climate Change, Site Stewardship and You.”
Immediately following the presentation, join us in unveiling a state marker for the historic lighthouses of St. Augustine near the Lighthouse Boat Ramp. A special project of the St. Augustine Archaeological Association, this marker commemorates the various beacons that have stood sentinel over our coast and protected St. Augustine. The ceremony will begin promptly at 3 PM.
Programming at the museum is free with regular admission fees to the Museum. The marker unveiling ceremony is free and open to the public.
