Exploring Forts and Frontiers on Amelia Island

What a weekend! This past Saturday, the FPAN crew, along with Flagler College Archaeology Club, and some extra volunteers, headed out to Fernandina on Amelia Island for the "Exploring Forts and Frontiers" event. There were guided trolley tours, which transported visitors between Fort Clinch and the historic Fort San Carlos site in the Old Town plaza. It was in this plaza that we set up an excavation, allowing the public to come get their hands dirty and participate in archaeology!
FPAN recieved permission from the state to do the dig, as teh results will be used in making a decision to put up a fence around the plaza area. We opened up 2 units and screened with the help of eager event participants. Not even the near-gale-forced winds kept people from coming out and enjoying themselves for the event! We all had a great time and we met a lot of great people! Thanks to everyone involved for all your hard work!
