Access Archaeology Day!
For those who cannot visit Arcadia Mill’s new excavation site during the workweek, the University of West Florida’s Arcadia Field School is going to be on site Saturday, July 14th, from 10:00 to 3:00.
As usual, tours will be offered at the dig site and volunteers will be able to sift the soil that is being excavated. Visitors should come to the Arcadia Visitor’s Center to be escorted to the dig site. Anyone who wishes to work outside must bring pants and close-toed shoes. A hat and sunscreen are also strongly recommended. Water will be provided on-site, but a water bottle is suggested and volunteers should bring their own lunch.
Volunteers also have the opportunity to work with artifacts in the indoor field lab and will be able to clean and sort artifacts recovered from the ongoing excavation. All ages are welcome to both the field school and field lab, but children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
Also, be aware that if you cannot come on the 14th, Friday, July 20th will be the last opportunity to volunteer at the site.
The Arcadia Mill Archaeological Site is located at 5709 Mill Pond Ln., Milton, Fla. 32583.
