Lecture: Crystal River Burial Mounds

Time: 1:00 pm til 2:00 pm

Location: Villages Public Library at Pinellas Plaza, 7375 Powell Road Suite 100 Wildwood, FL 34785

Description: The Crystal River site was once a sprawling ceremonial center, attracting people from great distances. This complex of burial and temple mounds is one of the longest continually occupied sites in Florida. Though the Native Americans who lived there are now long gone, their impressive earthen architecture remains. The mound complex attracted early archaeologists who discovered beautifully decorated pottery, shell, and copper artifacts. During this presentation, FPAN staff will discuss the unique design of the main burial complex, mortuary practices, and what both the artifacts and the mound itself can tell us about the native people that once thrived along the Crystal River.
