Kids are invited to learn about Florida’s past through archaeology and the clues left behind by ancient societies Monday, May 20 at 6 p.m. at the North Tampa Branch Library, 8916 N. Boulevard, Tampa.
Archaeologists from the Florida Public Archaeology Network at the University of South Florida will give a presentation for grades kindergarten to five, complete with real artifacts and replicas of tools that ancient Floridians would have used to survive.
This program is part of the Viva Florida 500 celebration, a statewide initiative led by the Florida Department of State to highlight the 500 years of historic people, places and events in Florida since the arrival of Juan Ponce de León to the land he named La Florida in 1513.
