It's HOT in Florida and time to hit the beach!

 There are many encounters that concern beach dwellers:
SHARK ENCOUNTERS
JELLYFISH ENCOUNTERS
SUNBURN ENCOUNTERS


 But what about..... ARTIFACT ENCOUNTERS???  Don't fear!  You can call The Bureau of Archaeology at 850-245-6444 to report artifacts found on the beach and their locations.
For more information: www.flheritage.com/archaeology. 
FPAN created the card below to inform people of the steps that should be taken:

    Here in Louisiana- years ago- a university professor found a Spanish olive jar on Holly Beach Louisiana (GOM). they did take a foto but did not report their finding to the archaeologist at the same university until they saw my library exhibit on underwater archaeology. We did go and searched the area with the help of the MMS archaeologists but failed to relocate the exact spot which likely marked the location of the beach camp of the salvagers who were working El Nuevo Constante that stranded in 1766- information not recorded, archaeological site not discovered.
