About Florida Archaeology Month

Do people move ideas or do ideas move people? To archaeologists, the Woodland Period in Florida, from 1000 BC to AD 1000, is identified and shaped by the results of widespread creativity, craft, and exchange. This movement of people, rituals, finely-made objects, and raw materials provides exciting evidence for people today to explore. This March 2016, help us celebrate these Artisans of the Woodland through the objects and places they created more than 1,000 years ago.
