Field school students, staff, and volunteers collaborate on excavation of a potential fireplace at Fort St. Joseph. Fireplaces at Fort St. Joseph have been uncovered, however, this feature is undetermined due to its orientation. Two of the units were new this season, while the third unit was reopened from a previous field season. It was a great learning tool for the students as it gave them a chance to try and decipher the feature’s original function.

Nine days after Hurricane Michael devastated the Florida Panhandle, Heritage Monitoring Scouts met with archaeologists to assess storm damage and erosion on Deadman’s Island. Located along Pensacola Bay, Deadman’s Island once served as a careening ground, shipbuilding center, quarantine station, and cemetery. Although the Pensacola area was not directly hit by the hurricane, erosion is a constant threat to the numerous archaeological sites on this unique landform. The Scout Meet-up, conducted on Deadman’s Island over a week after the hurricane, helped to document changes from the storm surge and to further train volunteers to assess other sites to the east of Pensacola that were more heavily affected.
