Archaeology of Precolumbian Florida by Jerald T. Milanich (review)

by H. Trawick Ward
Southern Cultures, Vol. 1, No. 3: Spring 1995

University Press of Florida, 1994

This book is the second to be written about Florida’s archaeology. The first, Florida Archaeology, by Milanich and Charles Fairbanks, was published in 1980. Because of the tremendous amount of research accomplished since then, this volume, which is almost twice as long as the first, was needed to incorporate more recent information into a comprehensive statewide synthesis of precolumbian Florida history. Milanich also informs us that a third volume, dealing solely with colonial period Indians and the impact of Europeans on their culture, is in the works.
