Archaeology Lecture
Saturday, Oct 24th, 4 pm to 6 pm

When Ponce de Leon first arrived in Florida in 1513 the Native American population exceeded 350,000 people which were organized into a number of powerful tribes. During the next two and half centuries additional expeditions came and established permanent European settlements. They also brought disease, conflict, and missionaries to spread their religious beliefs. By the late 1700s Florida’s first people were reduced to a scattered handful and their tribes, life-ways, and cultures had ceased to exist. This is their story.

Does the recently discovered and controversial "Dueling Dinosaurs" fossil provide proof of the validity of  Nanotyrannus as a species vs classification as a juvenile T. rex? Without a doubt according to Robert and his colleagues Dr. Robert Bakker of the Houston Museum of Natural History and Pete Larson of the Black Hills Institute.

Nanotyrannus is the rarest and most enigmatic of the Late Cretaceous tyrannosaurids. Its sleek build, smaller size, and powerful legs made it an exceptionally agile and lethal predator. "Tara" is one of only three of her kind yet discovered, and is  the only fully mounted skeleton of this fascinating dinosaur.
