2024 Adult Archaeology Camp

Discover Weedon Island's Ancient Past

It was such a great experience to host this year's Adult Archaeology Camp at Weedon Island Preserve, one of Florida’s preeminent archaeological sites. Participants worked with professional archaeologists and researchers to uncover clues about the culture and lifeways of the early people who inhabited the Tampa Bay region, along with assisting AWIARE researchers in excavation, recording data, screening sediment, and collecting artifacts, bone, and samples, many interesting artifacts were unearthed from the excavation, sorted and processed.

Along, with archaeologists Dr. Robert Austin and Dr. John Arthur giving talks about the site and local Indigenous history, we had a special guest visit us the second week, Dr. Ezra Zubrow, and his lovely wife, Marcia. Such a honor!

We look forward to seeing you next year!
