Lecture: Tales of Southwest Florida: Archaeology of the Calusa
November 9, 2021 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
The Calusa were called “the fierce people” in part because they held off Spanish domination for almost 200 years, but is the nickname really warranted? Sara Ayers-Rigsby, from the Florida Public Archaeology Network, will talk about the engineering, trade, and power that made the Calusa a dominating force in Southwest Florida long before the Spanish arrived.
