Aucilla River Prehistory Project “Virtual Museum Exhibit”

A “virtual museum exhibit” of some of the highlights of the ARPP is now online at URL: http://www.flmnh.ufl.edu/natsci/vertpaleo/aucilla/arpp01.htm.

Designed as a “slide show”, the exhibit includes graphic representations of many aspects of the project. The exhibit is designed to give the viewer background information on the geological/hydrological history of the Aucilla River area. Modules on the flora and fauna of the area during the Pleistocene, human artifacts recovered by the project, and the personnel and equipment that make the project such a success, are included with a special section on highlights of the project’s major accomplishments since its inception in 1983.

Congratulations to Joan Herrera and Dr. S. David Webb for designing the Aucilla River Prehistory Project’s “Virtual Museum Exhibit”, and to Joan Herrera and Dr. Wayne King for site design and html programming of the exhibit. Special thanks go to Dean Quigley, Marisa Renz, Chris Kreider, and Jim Dunbar for allowing us to use their artwork on the site.

FLMNH Web site wins gold, again!
