 Just like other artifacts that archaeologists find, plant remains can say a lot about past people’s diet, environment, and culture. Native Peoples in Florida have used various plants as medicine, food, and other important purposes for thousands of years. Learn about some of Florida’s most useful native plants, and how archaeologists study preserved plant remains to find out how people used them in the past. Becky O’Sullivan of the Florida Public Archaeology Network – West Central Region leads this interactive program.
