This summer Alliance for Weedon Island Archaeological Research and Education (AWIARE) in partnership with Florida Public Archaeology Network (FPAN) held two “Hands on Weedon” archaeology camps at Weedon Island. The camps were designed for students interested in exploring the past and were conducted by professional archaeologists and educators.
Campers learned about the importance of archaeology and gained an understanding about early natural resources that were necessary for life in the Tampa Bay region. Highlights of the camps included guest experts, tour of an archaeological site, hands-on archaeology, lab analysis, pottery making, atlatl adventure, and earning the certificate of Tommy the Tortoise, Junior Archaeologist.
We hope you will join us next summer and experience archaeology at its best!
