THE PALM BEACH COUNTY ARCHAEOLOGICAL SOCIETY INVITES YOU TO A LECTURE entitled



PRE-COLUMBIAN PALM BEACHERS

By Dorothy Block M.A.

Did you know that Palm Beach Island has been inhabited by man for at least 3,000 years? Are you interested in the conservation and protection of the numerous ancient Indian burial mounds and habitations sites scattered throughout the nation’s wealthiest township? Are you curious about the realities of how ancient burial and archaeological sites are dealt with by developers and property owners in this unique municipality?
If so, please join local archaeologist and Palm Beach County Archaeological Society founder Dorothy Block for a lecture describing Palm Beach’s ancient cultural sites and unmarked prehistoric Indian cemeteries. The lecture will recount the history of archaeological research on the island from the 1930s to the present, and assess the effectiveness of present day approaches to mitigation, conservation and protection of these important and non-renewable cultural resources.
