March is Archaeology Month, and the staff at the Florida Public Archaeology Network office in Markland House are gearing up for this coming month’s activities.
“March is the biggest month of the year for us. It’s very active,” said Outreach Coordinator Christy Pritchard. Every weekend in March will feature some kind of event going on throughout the center’s region, which includes Duval, Nassau, Putnam, St. Johns, Clay, Flagler and Volusia County; and one event will be held in each county.
The staff are hoping for Flagler student participation and support. “Students can hand out goodies, sit at the tables with us. We always take help,” said Pritchard. “Education students can brainstorm ideas to develop curriculum, archaeology lesson plans. History students can help us in doing research.”
FPAN offers paid internships for those who are interested in public archaeology.
