St. Augustine Archaeological Association is now Online!

Posted by: Chuck Meide in LAMPosts

I was pleased to see that the St. Augustine Archaeological Association, known locally as "S triple A," is now online with their own webpage, saaa.shutterfly.com. It looks like a great webpage right from the start, with a calender of events, links to photos, downloadable archaeology month poster, and past activities journal. Lots to keep supporters of St. Augustine archaeology interested!

The SAAA was formed in 1985 to promote interest in St. Augustine and St. Johns County archaeology, and to provide opportunities for individuals to work side by side with professionals in our area. SAAA has always been a great partner and supporter of LAMP (I couldn't help but notice that we were among their favorite links!) and its great to see this long overdue webpage!
