First Floridians Conference 2015

The Page-Ladson site in Jefferson County Florida is one of ten oldest 
Archaeological sites in the Western Hemisphere

Located on the southern edge of Florida’s Red Hills in the Aucilla River, the Page-Ladson paleoIndian
site has attracted intensive exploration by scientists since the 1960s. In the January 2015 issue of National Geographic Magazine an article includes Page-Ladson as one of only ten pre-Clovis sites for studying early human migration and settlement in the Western Hemisphere.

Recognition of the possibilities of this site was slow in coming. S. David Webb and James Dunbar were early investigators. Michael Waters of the Center for the First Americans at TAMU and others have continued studying into 2014. Several remarkable finds in the 1980s and 1990s kept scholarly interest high. An artifact found in 2014 proved to be 14,400 years old. 

In 2012 a gathering of scientists and scholars met to discuss the meaning and possibilities of Page-Ladson and similar nearby sites in the First Floridians First Americans Conference in Monticello, Florida. Pre-Clovis artifacts were displayed and studied, increasing lay and scholarly interest in the PaleoIndian sites in the Aucilla River and the Red Hills Region. 

Inspired by the First Floridians First Americans of 2012, several speakers and community leaders formed a committee to create a local institute to support scholarly study of the Aucilla Basin. Monticello’s new Aucilla Research Institute (ARI) provides logistical and research support for visiting scientists. ARI founders expect the Institute’s work to gradually spark an economic resurgence of the area.

ARI is a participant in planning the Second First Floridians First Americans Conference to be held in Monticello on October 1, 2, 3, 2015. Because of the stature of the Page-Ladson site, speakers include some of the foremost Paleolithic scholars in the Western Hemisphere.
