City Launches New Site Devoted to Archaeological Work

Public can now “dig St. Augustine” on line

Few cities in the nation can rival St. Augustine’s buried archeological heritage and now there is a way to experience the excitement of discovery without getting dirty.

The City of St. Augustine has launched a new Web site featuring the extensive work and research literally uncovered by the city’s Archaeological Division through the city’s archaeological preservation ordinance. The city adopted the ordinance in 1987 and over the past 22 years more than 600 locations within the city limits have been investigated. The site’s address is www.digstaug.org or can be accessed through the city’s Web site at www.staugustinegovernment.com.

Undoubtedly to become a valuable tool for historians in general and archeologists in particular it provides a greater understanding of archaeology as a discipline. The Web site was developed with the aid of a grant from the St. Augustine Research Institute (SARI) to the City of St. Augustine’s Archaeology Division. The goals of SARI which is a collaboration between Flagler College and the University of Florida are to encourage, coordinate and disseminate active academic research related to the history, archaeology, and historical landscape and structures of St. Augustine. Carl Halbirt, the city's archeologist, stated that the Research Institute saw value in such a Web site resource.

The site has information on the methods used by the division to investigate a site, questions which property owners or contractors might have if an investigation is required, location of archaeological zones in the city limits and detailed information about St. Augustine’s unique archaeological heritage. Images of the artifacts found throughout the city are highlighted along with their description.
“With the upcoming 450th anniversary it’s great to have this Web site available for the public and educators to learn about the City’s archaeological heritage,” said Mark Knight, Director of the City of St. Augustine's Planning and Building Department. The Archeological Division is part of the Planning and Building Department.


Old City Web Services, Inc. designed and hosts the Web site.
