Description: On Tuesday, February 6, the monthly meeting of the St. Augustine Archaeological Association will present a talk by Dr. Gifford Waters titled The 1702 Siege of St. Augustine in Queen Anne’s War.
Waters is the Collections Manager for Historical Archaeology at the Florida Museum of Natural History at the University of Florida in Gainesville. Waters was recently awarded an American Battlefield Protection Program Grant (GA 2287-17-005) through the National Park Service. His presentation will discuss the goals of this project in identifying locations of battles and skirmishes associated with the 1702 British siege of St. Augustine, and assessing their preservation, management, and interpretation needs. Specific areas of interest include the Castillo de San Marcos, the city of St. Augustine, as well as areas of military engagement further north in Florida such as Amelia Island and Fort George Island. After the presentation guests in the audience are encouraged to ask questions, present comments and concerns, and offer any insights they might have related to the siege and known or unknown locations of battles and skirmishes.
