Refuge Archeology 2 | Discovering the Spring Creek Village

Refuge Archeology 2 | Discovering the Spring Creek Village

A few weeks ago, we met Jeffrey Shanks and Dr. Michael Russo, archeologists working with the Southeast Archeological Center. They've been excavating sites in the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge, where culture groups known as Swift Creek and Weeden Island lived over a thousand years ago.

In today's segment, we look at how they used their knowledge to predict the location of a village here.

Rob Diaz de Villegas is a senior producer for television at WFSU Public Media, covering outdoors and ecology. After years of producing the music program OutLoud, Rob found himself in a salt marsh with a camera, and found a new professional calling as well. That project, the National Science Foundation funded "In the Grass, On the Reef," spawned the award-winning WFSU Ecology Blog. Now in its tenth year, the Ecology Blog recently wrapped its most ambitious endeavor, the EcoCitizen Project.

Rob is married with two young sons, who make a pretty fantastic adventure squad.
