About this item

“An important book about a natural World Heritage site that also has a rich human heritage.”—American Archaeology“As the only available synthesis of the archaeology of the Everglades, this book fills an important niche.”—Choice“Adds immeasurably to our knowledge of South Florida archaeology.”—Journal of Field Archaeology“Offers a vivid glimpse into a rich cultural past in an oftentimes misunderstood and overlooked region of our country.”—H-Net “Detailed descriptions of archaeological surveys and test excavations dovetail nicely with broader chapters on settlement, subsistence, and social organization. This is a valuable reference work.”—SMRC RevistaOriginally prepared as a report for the National Park Service in 1988, John Griffin’s work places the human occupation of the Everglades within the context of South Florida’s unique natural environmental systems. Griffin documents the little known but relatively extensive precolumbian occupation of the interior portion of the region and surveys the material culture of the Glades area. He also provides an account of the evolution of the region’s climate and landscape and a history of previous archaeological research in the area. Jerald Milanich and James Miller have transformed Griffin’s report into an accessible, comprehensive overview of Everglades archaeology. John W. Griffin, a pioneer in Florida archaeology, was an archaeologist for both the Florida Park Service and the National Park Service (NPS), director of the NPS Southeast Archeological Center in Macon, Georgia, and director of the St. Augustine Preservation Board. Jerald T. Milanich is emeritus professor at the University of Florida/Florida Museum of Natural History and author of numerous books about the native peoples of the Southeast United States. James J. Miller was state archaeologist and chief of Florida’s Bureau of Archaeological Research for twenty years and is now a consultant in heritage planning.
