Panhandle Archaeological Society at Tallahassee (PAST) - Tallahassee News | ABC 27 WTXL: Calendar


Tallahassee , FL

Join us on Tuesday, November 5, 2013, at 7 P.M., as Dr. Dan Seinfeld presents “New Investigations into the Letchworth Mounds Archaeological Site”. The Letchworth Mounds Archaeological site features the tallest mound in the state of Florida. Relatively little archaeological investigations have been conducted at the site compared to other major centers. Recent investigations using Ground Penetrating Radar, LiDAR, excavation, and soil coring have yielded new information about the mounds. These findings highlight the significance of the mounds to the site’s ancient inhabitants. Dan Seinfeld is an archaeologist with the Bureau of Archaeological Research. He received his PhD from Florida State University. PAST meetings are at the B. Calvin Jones Center for Archaeology at the Gov. Martin House, 1001 De Soto Park Dr., Tallahassee. De Soto Park Dr. is off Lafayette St. between Seminole Dr. and Myers Park Dr.  Look for the PAST sign on Lafayette St. on the evening of the meeting.

Panhandle Archaeological Society at Tallahassee (PAST) is a free event.
