Perry Pines Sites: A Cultural Resources Phase I Survey Report

Author(s): Gary Beiter; Monica Oyola-Coeur

Year: 2016


A Phase I survey was conducted in Perry Pines, Taylor County, Florida for an expansion of limestone mining of the area. The research aimed at locating and assessing potential archaeological and historical resources within the project area. Six archaeological resources were identified: a habitational site, a camp site, a bridge site and three quarry sites for stone tool making. Located in the North Peninsula Gulf Coast archaeological region, the Perry Pines sites appear to have been intermittently used and their resources extracted for over 2,000 years, spanning from the Archaic to the present. Cultural artifacts and features ranging from ancient lithic tools, to early Twentieth Century timber operations, provided insight on past human activity, site function and, use of the project area natural resources over time.
