“Snowbirds and South Florida’s Caribbean Connection”

Mallory Fenn

South Florida is a unique place in many ways- and its archaeology is no exception! While many ancient North and Central Floridians had trade connections with Appalachian and Mississippian people, much of South Florida’s prehistory is deeply tied with the Caribbean and its surrounding coasts. Many archaeological sites in South Florida have yielded finds similar to sites throughout the Caribbean. This talk explores the extensive seasonal routes which may have been traveled by “Ancient Snowbirds”, and examines archaeological evidence uncovered throughout the Circum-Caribbean.
