Description: Florida Archeology Month will be observed at Trout Lake Nature Center with a Saturday afternoon program titled Technology from the Past and Citizen Science that delves into ancient civilizations – how Native Americans lived, hunted, fished and survived in Central Florida. See what sort of technology they used to help their lives.
Participants will learn about application of the earliest technology: how fishing techniques evolved over thousands of years, what history lies in the construction of middens and burial mounds.
Participants will also learn about the new Heritage Monitoring Scouts program. Heritage Monitoring Scouts (HMS Florida) is a public engagement program focused on tracking changes to archaeological sites at risk, particularly those impacted by climate change in the form of erosion and sea level rise. Join Florida Public Archaeology Network (FPAN) staff for this information session to learn how to become a heritage monitoring scout. We will talk about threats to archaeological sites, how to identify some common site types and artifacts, and the best way to record and monitor them.
