Lighting the Way to Archaeology-Year 5

October 23, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm EDT

Mission San Luis
2100 West Tennessee Street
Tallahassee, 32306 United States


AIA Society: Tallahassee

Four student clubs from Florida State University welcome kids with visual disabilities from the Lighthouse of the Big Bend of Florida to Lighting the Way to Archaeology, a day of learning about archaeology through sensory experiences of smelling, tasting, touching. Student volunteers make presentations on the theme of Foodways of the Old World and New World and guide the kids through fun stuff like grape smashing, corn shucking and of course tasting chocolate both sweetened and unsweetened. There’s a visit to installations at Mission San Luis de Apalachee, a Franciscan Spanish Mission beautifully recreated. We hear interpreters present information at the Blacksmith’s Shop and in the Spanish home garden and kitchen. The four clubs are the Classics Archaeology Club, Eta Sigma Phi (Classics honor Society), and the Anthropology Graduate Club and Anthropology Undergraduate Club for Archaeology. The whole event is funded through an AIA Grant to the Tallahassee Society for International Archaeology Month.
