Tuning In To Public Archaeology

Author(s): Michael B Thomin

Year: 2016


Unearthing Florida is a radio program designed to enhance the public’s understanding and appreciation of Florida’s archaeological heritage.  This program was created following the 14 year success of the Unearthing Pensacola radio program broadcast on NPR member station WUWF 88.1. The creation of Unearthing Florida was made possible through a partnership between WUWF Public Media and the Florida Public Archaeology Network. Over 100 episodes have been produced since this program was first launched in March 2012. These episodes currently air every weekday through WUWF and every Sunday morning through WGCU. They are available for other NPR member stations across the state. These short, informative pieces highlight sites open to the public, discuss previous and ongoing research, and explain how the archaeological process contributes to our understanding of the past. Ultimately the goal of Unearthing Florida is to promote the statewide protection and preservation of Florida’s archaeological resources to the public.
