If there was ever a time to start a blog for FPAN, it would be now. We have plenty to talk about, and plenty that we would like feedback on.

It has been a busy summer to say the least: There was the Debary Hall Archaeology Day Camp, the Legacy Program Princess Place's archaeological excursion to Belize, the Ravine Gardens Day Camp, Kingsley Archaeology Day, the Project Archaeology/ Teacher Training Conference, the kicking off of the archaeology-themed "Notes from the Underground" lecture series on Flagler College Radio, assisting with the LAMP field school from Flinders, the Fort Mose innagural day, the production and radio debut of the FPAN Northeast Regional Center theme song, and to top it all off, Sarah, Christy, and Hannah have begun their certification to be scientific divers to assist in underwater digs going on in the area. Nice.

The fun, however, is just beginning. The fall festival season is looming. Beginning unofficially next week with FPAN interpretation and information at the Fountain of Youth site for the St. Augustine 442 Birthday Celebration, it will reach the apex of hysteria in October (aka Archtober), and slowly and unwillfully fizzle out towards the end of November with the onset of the holiday season.
This blog is here for all of you out there to have a convenient way of communicating your thoughts to us, whether it be about events, general progress, or if you just want to put in you two cents about our adventures and everyday hijinks. Post us a reply sometime and help us to reach our full potential as a public archaeology center and outreach resource for you! Keep checking the website calendar for updates about upcoming events!
And thats the Dirt for today.

    Great to see that FPAN is continuing to take archaeology public by starting a blog! Looking forward to lots of great northeast Florida archaeology stories. Maybe FPAN can guest-blog on LAMP's blog (LAMPosts) about their taking the scuba class, and I can guest-blog on the FPAN blog about teaching it . . .
