Little Salt Spring
Diving aficionados and history buffs have a chance to view an unusual collection of artifacts excavated from Little Salt Spring, in a new exhibit showing at The Florida Aquarium, in Tampa, titled: “Dive into the Past: An Exhibit on the Little Salt Spring Archaeological Site.” Conceived and created by Dan Hughes, the Sarasota County archaeologist, in collaboration with scientists from the University of Miami’s Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, it will be on display from January 13 – March 30 2008.
“Bringing this exhibit to our facility serves to underscore our commitment to preserving our aquatic resources, as well as our state’s rich and diverse archaeological history,” said Thom Stork, CEO and President of The Florida Aquarium.
