Archaeology Field Schools

University of Florida archaeology students participated in the 2006 field school at Kingsley Plantation.

Ever wonder how archaeologists make sense of the past? Each summer field schools from the University of Florida and the University of North Florida participate in archaeological investigations within the Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve. According to the Timucuan Preserve's Brian Loadholtz, "This is a rare opportunity to see archaeologists at work. Archaeologists provide a window into the past, locating the tangible pieces of American history while helping put together the story of the people who lived in the preserve."

Learn more about archaeology in the park by asking a Ranger or by visiting the links below.
