Description: Archaeology Lecture Series - Materializing Ontology in Monumental Form: Recent Advances in Paleoamerican Research in Florida by Albert C. Goodyear, Ph.D
Current research by Dr. Goodyear on the extensive Ike Rainey collection in Ocala is aiding immensely in developing a fluted point survey for the State of Florida. The number of Clovis points is easily equal to the numbers reported from adjacent states and may in fact exceed them. One of goals of the Southeastern Paleoindian Survey (SEPAS) is to record the distribution of Clovis and other fluted points from the Tampa Bay region up to and including North Carolina. By having a dense series of maps it should be possible to begin to compare adjacent and related Clovis bands over an 800km transect north and south. Several significant studies currently underway in Florida are also expanding preClovis research at places like Vero Beach, Wakulla Springs, and the CCA site originally discovered by Barbara Purdy. Come learn more about Dr. Goodyear's work in this lecture.
