Archaeology Insights at Biophilia Center

The one day event was geared toward kids and adults alike.

The University of West Florida partnered with an archaeology expert to share and discuss artifacts.

Director Paul Arthur says the partnership between the center and Archaeologist Tristan Harrenstein is a natural one.

Harrenstein is a representative from the Florida Public Archaeology network.

All the artifacts he brought were native to Pensacola and the Emerald Coast.

"Everything that is important, we want to know all the history of the land. We want to know how did the Indians take care of the land, and the more information that you can dig up, the more information will help us go forward in the future," said Arthur.

The center also held interactive activities with the kids, including a crafts time.

The center will close in July to give the animals in there some rest, but will open back up in August with some new visitors: penguins!
