Learn about the Windover archaeological dig in Titusville!

Please join us for the May History Book Club on May 11th where Dr. Rachel Wentz, archeologist and human remains expert, will discuss her book, "Life and Death at Windover: Excavations of a 7,000-Year-Old Pond Cemetary."

This book takes you on the journey of a 7,000-year-old discovery in Titusville. In 1982 a backhoe operator unearthed a human skull while working on the Windover Farms housing development.  Other remains were also found, and their history began to unfold, dating further back than King Tut and the pyramids of Egypt. Learn how the story is still being unraveled today.
 
Dr. Wentz has also analyzed remains from other prehistoric sites in Florida. She has taught  courses in physical anthropology, human osteology, and forensic anthropology at Florida State University and serves on the Brevard County Historical Commission.
 
1-2:30 p.m.; followed by book signing.
 
Free. Refreshments provided.
 
Call (407)[masked] to register.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
