Dr. John E. Worth

Associate Professor, Department of Anthropology

I am an anthropologist specializing in archaeology and ethnohistory, with a primary research focus on the European colonial era in the Southeastern United States.  On these pages are some resources of potential interest to students and colleagues, including selected unpublished papers, as well as information on past and present research and teaching activities, and assorted links and photos.  

In addition to my main faculty web page, I have developed a resource page about Spanish Florida between 1513 and 1763; please check back for periodic updates, since it is still growing.

My current summer archaeological field school research focuses on Mission San Joseph de Escambe, which is being explored as part of the Pensacola Colonial Frontiers Project. To read about the successful 2009 summer search and discovery of the mission, and our continuing progress during the summers of 2010-2014, please visit the online blog for the project.
