The Florida Public Archaeology Network, UWF Historic Trust, the University of West Florida History Department, and the City of Pensacola are pleased to announce the recent installation of Pensacola's new Maritime Heritage Trail! The Trail includes 12 interpretive panels along Bayfront Avenue and Main Street in Pensacola, showcasing thousands of years of Pensacola maritime history and archaeology! The project was funded by the National Park Service's Maritime Heritage Grant program.

If you're interested in learning more about the Trail, check out the new rack card that features a map of the sign locations. You can also stop by the Florida Public Archaeology Network Coordinating Center or various spots in Historic Pensacola for a hard copy! 
Learn how to bring awareness of submerged cultural resources (like shipwrecks) to your SCUBA students! FPAN will be offering a Heritage Awareness Diving Seminar (HADS) on October 19-20th in Riviera Beach, Florida, and all SCUBA professionals are invited to attend! Approved by NAUI, PADI, SDI, and UDT, HADS is intended to teach the advantages of conserving shipwrecks and other submerged cultural resources. Attendees will receive all teaching materials used during the course (including PowerPoints)! 

Spots are still available and there is time to register! If you are interested or want to learn more, visit our HADS webpage or contact Nicole Grinnan at ngrinnan@uwf.edu.

Meet our Newest Graduate Assistant: Keilani Hernandez

Join us in welcoming Keilani Hernandez, our newest Public Archaeology Assistant! Each year, FPAN provides one new archaeology graduate student at the University of West Florida (UWF) with a three-year assistantship to help support their education and promote student involvement in public archaeology. Keilani graduated from UWF with a B.A. in Anthropology in Spring 2016 and is continuing her legacy at UWF as a historical archaeology graduate student with a focus on maritime archaeology!

Partner Spotlight: 
Biscayne National Park


This August, FPAN partnered with Biscayne National Park to co-host a Submerged Sites Education and Archaeological Stewardship (SSEAS) workshop with assistance from the National Parks Conservation Association. With over 95% of its acreage submerged and a large number of historic shipwreck sites, Biscayne National park has been an important partner in helping FPAN teach the value of protecting and preserving submerged cultural heritage in Florida. This year, staff from FPAN and Biscayne National Park worked with 14 divers from Aquanauts and Junior Scientists in the Sea to learn how to record and monitor the Park's Maritime Heritage Trail wrecks!
