FAS ANNUAL CONFERENCE AWARDS


AWIARE and its partners, Central Gulf Coast Archaeological Society; Florida Public Archaeology Network; and University of South Florida, St. Petersburg, received an awesome award from the Florida Anthropological Society at its annual meeting in Crystal River on May 10-12. The award is for all our contributions to the understanding and preservation of Florida's past. Thank you FAS and thanks to our partners for working with us to promote the prehistory and history of the greater Tampa Bay region.
