Children's FLYP Event: Underwater Archaeology
Thursday, July 18 @ 3pm
This program uses the book, Shipwreck: Fast Forward, to explore how underwater sites form and the excavation processes used to retrieve information about them. Kids can try their hand at using Cartesian coordinates by playing an adapted version of Battleship to “map” each other’s shipwrecks. They'll also get to map a real, 100-year-old anchor. Presented by the Florida Public Archaeology Network, which is dedicated to the protection of cultural resources, both on land and underwater, and to involving the public in the study of their past. This program is sponsored in partnership with the Friends of the Library of St. Johns County.
