Oddities in Florida's history

Event Date(s)

Begins: February 7, 2019 2:00 pm
Ends: February 7, 2019 3:00 pm

Florida has a long history of odd behaviors, interesting characters and fierce natural environs.

Emily Jane Murray, public archaeology coordinator for the Florida Public Archaeology Network, will shed light on some of these oddities at 2 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 7, at the New Smyrna Beach Regional Library, 1001 S. Dixie Freeway. 

She will explain how natives remained hunters and gatherers until the Spanish arrived, why runaway slaves sought new lives in St. Augustine, and how an oil barren spent his fortune on Florida.
