Archaeologist to Discuss Florida Mission System

Archaeologist to Discuss Florida Mission System

The Archaeological Institute of America—Jacksonville Society will meet at noon on May 18, 2019 in Building 51 at the University of North Florida to hear a lecture by Dr. Keith Ashley, a
professor of archaeology at UNF. The title of the lecture is “Mocama Indians and Spanish Missions: Life Beneath the Bell.” When most people think of Spanish Missions, they think of
California, New Mexico, or even Texas. What many do not realize is that the Spanish Mission system in Florida occurred earlier and lasted longer than it did in any of those other areas.
Among the Mocama-speaking Timucua of northeastern Florida, mission communities existed  between 1587 and 1702. This lecture discusses Mocama life under the mission bell, with
emphasis on archaeological excavations at San Juan del Puerto and Santa Cruz de Guadalquini in Jacksonville. The lecture is free and open to the public. Complimentary refreshments will be
served afterwards in the Archaeology Lab. On Saturday parking is free, and the faculty/staff/vendor spaces are open to everyone. For more information, contact Melva Price at
(904)241-9411 or aiajaxsoc@gmail.com.
