Bones from an extinct giant land tortoise, antler and bone tools from the Late Paleoindian period, and a pre-historic “calendar” will be on display as Dr. John Gifford, Associate Professor at the University of Miami, presents the latest research from Little Salt Spring, a University of Miami-owned 200-foot deep sinkhole in south Sarasota County. UM’s Department of Anthropology invites you to learn about Florida’s earliest residents and see video of Dr. Gifford and divers from the Florida Aquarium excavating the largest collection of the oldest wooden artifacts found anywhere in the world.
