The Prehistory of Charlotte Harbor, Part I

Ted Ehmann, President of the Charlotte Harbor Anthropological Society and author of the forthcoming book, The People of the Great Circle, will present what Charlotte Harbor was like going back to its earliest residents, bands of hunter-gatherers who hunted big game here as early as 14,000 B.C.. Learn how there was no harbor and the Indians that lived here lived in an interior wooded area, 130 miles from a coast in either direction. Ehmann will reveal how archaeologists have discovered that these earliest of residents actually shared both genetic and cultural similarities. Special emphasis will be on the three nearby Archaic sites in Sarasota County. All must register for the course online at the Renaissance Academy-Punta Gorda registration portal. Cost is $20.
