Week 7, March 4th: - Prentice Thomas & Assoc., Inc.
, Cultural Resource Management
Note: This event will be held in the Auditorium (Bldg. 8).
The appeal of a location by the water can be seen in
ever increasing prices of waterfront property and
seemingly unstoppable coastal development in
northwest Florida. This appeal is not, however, a
modern phenomenon. Archaeological investigations
have revealed a selection for waterfront land by
prehistoric people settling the panhandle over 3,000
years ago. Recent excavations by the company have reaffirmed that one of the most
sought-after areas was around downtown Fort Walton
This presentation explores what the cultural
landscape looked like when it was dotted with burial
mounds and prehistoric villages instead of bars,
restaurants, and condos.
The company provides
archaeological and cultural resource management
services to a wide range of clientele. Since 1977, they
have conducted over 1400 archaeological projects in
Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, Georgia, and other
locations in the United States; responding to our
nationís goal of preserving its diverse historical and
cultural values by integrating exciting research with
compliance work and providing timely and cost-effective services in Cultural Resource Management and historic preservation.
