Florida Anthropology & Archeology

Archeology is a very important field in Florida. There are many Archeological sites located in Florida including Native American sites, the ruins of old European forts, and lots of others. There is also a plethora of underwater Archeological sites in the Florida waters. This includes shipwrecks, of which Florida has many. Explorers flock to some Florida areas – most commonly the Florida Keys – to explore some of these shipwreck sites.

The Bok Tower Gardens makes for the perfect day trip on a bright and sunny Florida day. Not only are there 250 acres of gardens to enjoy, there is also the stunning Bok Tower, also known as the Singing Tower. This tower is definitely the highlight of the grounds, with it's beautiful architecture and ringing carillon bells throughout the day. The structure started construction in 1927 and finished in 1929 and has since been standing tall and ringing its bells proudly. The grounds are perfect for an afternoon picnic and as long as you clean up after them, dogs are allowed in most parts of the historical area.
