The preservation of archaeological sites in South Florida is supported by strong ordinances and laws intended to protect sites but working with developers, along with local municipalities, the State of Florida, and community partners, requires creative management of the cultural resources. Jorge Zamanillo will offer his perspective on some of the discoveries in recent history that led to the preservation of major archaeological remains in Miami. The lecture will cover not only the history of the sites but also the intricate negotiations and background stories that developed during the fight to preserve the resources. Different methods used to preserve and display these resources will also be shared. This lecture series has been made possible by the generosity of Isaac Gilinski.
