Date: 4/20/2013
Start Time: 2:00 PM
End Time: 3:00 PM
Description:
 Humans have utilized fire for more than 500,000 years. Since its capture and domestication, fire has transformed human civilization and its control is frequently cited as one of the demarcations separating “human” from “nonhuman.” Prehistoric Floridians relied heavily on fire, and we see its application in numerous aspects of their culture. Join Dr. Rachel Wentz, Regional Director with the Florida Public Archaeology Network as she explores the numerous ways fire has transformed our state. Also preview her newest release Let Burn which looks back on Wentz’s years as a firefighter/paramedic with the Orlando Fire Department. Book sale and signing will follow the program. #vivaflorida
