(St. Augustine, Fla.) – On Tuesday Sep 3rd, the monthly meetings of the St. Augustine Archaeological Association (SAAA) resume. A talk will be given by Katherine Sims, titled “Stories from the Shadows: The Lives of the Enslaved at Arcadia Mill in Milton, Florida”

The Arcadia Mill industrial complex of northwest Florida was once a thriving commercial enterprise that included over 100 enslaved individuals. After many years of archaeological investigations, much more is known about their poorly documented communities and daily lives.

Katherine Sims received her Master’s Degree in Historical Archaeology from the University of West Florida and now works for the City of St. Augustine as the Research and Collections Archaeologist. Her research interests include Spanish colonial history, plantation archaeology, and applications in Geographic Information Systems.

The event is free and opened to the public. The presentation will begin at 7:00 PM in the Flagler Room at Flagler College campus, 74 King Street, St. Augustine, Florida 32084.For more information visit our website: saaa.shutterfly.com.
