Parkin Archeological State Park commemorated International Archaeology Day 2013 by offering a primitive pottery workshop. Participants learned about how the Mississippian Indians created coil pottery and then they made their own pots from clay dug from the bank of the St. Francis River, adjacent to the Parkin archeological site. The pots were fired in an open fire pit on November 16 and they are happy to report that all survived!
The AIA-Gainesville Society celebrated International Archaeology Day at a new exhibit opening at the Florida Museum of Natural History, and by hosting two related lectures on the archaeology and history of St. Augustine.
