64th Annual Meeting of the Florida Anthropological Society
Time: 8:00 am til 8:00 pm
Location: Mission San Luis, Tallahassee
Description: The Panhandle Archaeological Society at Tallahassee will host the 64th Annual Meeting of the Florida Anthropological Society in Tallahassee, May 11-13, 2012. The theme of this year's conference - Forever Changed, La Florida - recognizes the significance of Florida's Spanish colonial heritage beginning with Ponce de Leon's 1513 landing and ending when Florida became a territory of the United States in 1821. Tallahassee is the ideal setting for the conference. In addition to being the site of Hernando de Soto’s 1539-40 winter encampment, Tallahassee is also home to the extraordinary Mission San Luis de Talimali, established in 1656 when Spanish authorities decided to locate their western capital among the Apalachee on one of the city’s highest points. Owned by the State of Florida, San Luis is now a National Landmark and a living history village based upon decades of meticulous archaeological research. San Luis boasts a recently constructed state-of-the-art conference facility and museum – the setting of FAS 2012. Papers and posters on all topics pertaining to Florida anthropology and archaeology are invited for presentation with papers related to the archaeology of Florida
