Time: 10:00 am til 12:00 pm
Location: Weedon Island Preserve Cultural and Natural History Center, 1800 Weedon Dr NE, St Pete
Description: Ever wonder what archaeologists do with all that stuff they dig up at archaeological sites once the fieldwork is finished? At the FPAN Volunteer Lab, you can come find out for yourself! Learn all about how artifacts and other archaeological material get processed in the laboratory so that we can use them to learn about the past. You will get the chance to sort through, identify, and wash artifacts and other material from real archaeological sites!
All ages are welcome to participate or observe, children 12 and under should be accompanied by an adult.

Expanding Paleo-Indian and Archaic Archaeology in the Chipola Valley, Northwest Florida, with GIS and Collectors’ Data
The Chipola River Valley in northwest Florida is an area of long occupation by pre-contact peoples, dating as far back as the Paleo-Indian and Archaic time periods (approximately 13,000 years B.P). While heavy archaeological research has been done in this region, I worked with a local collector to study over 700 projectile points found from the Chipola River. The collector has taken great care of these points and in many cases documented the GPS coordinates from where they were taken in the river. Using this information and GIS, I have been able to compare the known site information along the Chipola with this new data set to study settlement patterns within the Chipola River Valley.
