In addition to including members of the general public in projects, classes and events, UWF archaeologists regularly present public talks at no cost to schools, teacher workshops and organizations such as Rotary, Sertoma, Elderhostel, and garden clubs. UWF archaeological investigations are often conducted in publicly accessible places. Where possible, information tables are available to the public. Students and staff are always willing to discuss the excavations with visitors, and tours are available upon request. When sites are not generally accessible, as is often the case with maritime excavations, special tours or public archaeology days are arranged to bring guests to the sites.

For more information about requesting a presentation or tour, call the Archaeology Institute at (850) 474-3015.
