Saturday, May 30th, 6:30pm: BANQUET at the Hyatt: Keynote Speaker Dr. Jerald Milanich. $50.00.
“Five Formative Years in the Life of J.T. Milanich, Dirt Archaeologist, 1966-1971” In his illustrated presentation Milanich will explain how it came to be that he participated in the 1969 excavation of the Yellow Bluffs-Whitaker Mound in Sarasota, a project some people (well, actually only one person) have said is the birth of New College’s outstanding archaeology program. The excavation in the Spring of 1969 was quickly followed by (but was not a cause of) the infamous Summer of Love when music lovers flocked to Woodstock, spacemen first landed on the moon, Dave Van Ronk played the Philadephia Folk Festival, and Milanich excavated at Historic Bethlehem (Pennsylvania).
Sunday, May 31st, 9am: MORNING CRUISE on Sarasota Bay. Prehistory, history, and humor presented at lightning speed by a native Sarasotan, font of knowledge, and local treasure, John McCarthy. $25.00
