City Thanks Those who Help Dig the Past
Archeological volunteers log a record 4,000+ hours

November 14, 2001

St. Augustine is unique among communities its size to have a full time archeologist on staff to document its 436-years of history. With so much history so close to the surface, it is the city’s archeological ordinance that protects St. Augustine’s buried heritage from being lost to the backhoe. There is so much ground to cover--or uncover--that the city’s archeologist cannot do all the work himself. He relies on a vital volunteer program to help in all areas of field and lab work.

Recently, those volunteers were thanks for their hard work which has contributed to St. Augustine garnering praise and accolades from archaeology and history professionals across the nation for its dynamic archeology program.

The City hosted an appreciation ceremony for the fourteen volunteers who, over the last 12 months have logged more than 4,000 hours assisting in some of the 12 archaeological projects undertaken by the city.

Recognized for their dedication to uncovering and preserving St. Augustine’s past were George Allen, Judy Allen, Jennifer Bibb, Helen Gradison, Melissa Hagen, Gail Hart, Tom Kehn, Pauline Larrivey, Bob McKinney, Harry Metz , Margaret Perkins, Betty Riggan, Mike Tarleton, and Clara Waldhari.

Many of the volunteers are members of the St. Augustine Archeological Association, a chapter of the Florida Anthropological Society. Projects they have worked on include the Monson property on Avenida Menendez, the Cubo Line along Cordova Street, 17 King Street, the site of the new Target store on US 1, and Fish Island.

Thanking the volunteers were Mayor Mark Alexander, Commissioner Alexander Christine, and City Archaeologist Carl D. Halbirt at a ceremony in the commission meeting room at City hall.
