Summary

Since the City of St. Augustine's Archaeological Preservation Ordinance was enacted in 1986 more than 200 wells have been excavated. This presentation takes a look at some of the styles and circumstances of their construction and examines the the distribution of these various styles across the city's archaeological zones during the city's centuries of development. Through the varieties of well construction used over the centuries we hope to glean insight into the path that the city has taken as it has grown.
