The Palm Beach County Archaeological Society Invites you to Attend Lecture Entitled:

Finding Bimini: Ponce de Leon and the Fountain of Youth

Presented by renowned archaeologist and author Robert S. Carr M.A.

In 1513 Ponce de Leon sailed from Puerto Rico to discover and claim Bimini for the King of Spain. Historical documents reveal that Bimini was actually Florida. How did knowledge of Florida make its way to European explorers in the early sixteenth century prior to its “discovery”? Carr’s lecture will examine both prehistoric and early historic contacts between Florida, the Bahamas, and Cuba, and what, if any, influences have affected indigenous cultural development in the region.

After the lecture, PBCAS will host a book signing for Carr’s new book Digging Miami which provides a comprehensive summary of the archaeology of Miami. Light refreshments will be served.
