Archaeologists Dr. Andy Hemmings and John Duggan examine materials from the first two years of excavation at the Vero Ice Age Site.
In Year Two all materials from the Vero dig moved to FAU’s Harbor Branch where a complete inventory of soils and artifacts is underway. This inventory will be added to as 2017 progresses.
During year three a deposit of bones was uncovered and numerous extinct mammal bone fragments were excavated, including those from what appear to be two extinct Bison antiques.
OVIASC will begin our fourth year of excavation at the site in January 2017. We continue the adventure partnering with Florida Atlantic University/Harbor Branch, Dr. Hemmings remains the on site lead Archaeologist and Dr. James Adovasio the Principal Investigator.
Tours of the site will be available February 1st thru April 30, 2017.
Volunteer screening will begin in late January 2017.
