Did you know that the City of St. Augustine has some of the best archaeology in the country? This is because there's a law, a City Ordinance, that says you can't dig in the ground in St. Augustine without first checking with the City Archaeologist. If you are in one of the oldest neighborhoods in the City (some of the City is over 400 years old), the City Archaeologist gets to test the history that's under the ground at the place where you want to dig, or build a house or anything else that will disturb what's underground. Oldest City + Lots of Archaeology = some of the best opportunities to learn about archaeology in the country! The FPAN staff thought it would be a great idea to create a museum exhibit around one neighborhood and one project done by the City Archaeologist.
