2017 FSU Archaeological Field School
Submerged Prehistory and Paleoindian Geoarchaeology of the Aucilla and Wacissa Rivers
The 2017 field school was held in the Aucilla-Wacissa drainage, a Florida Outstanding Waterway, ca. 45 minutes south-east of Tallahassee, Florida. This area contains dozens of Paleoindian sites (>11,500 years old) that were inundated by rising water levels at the end of the last Ice Age. The karst geology of the drainage preserved these sites within now-underwater sediment layers, giving us a unique picture of Southeastern Paleoindians.
