What do Launch Pad 14 and Burnham Cemetery have in common? Both are cultural resources located on Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. LP 14 is where we first launched man around the moon, the cemetery dates to the 19th century, and behind the cemetery is a prehistoric burial mound thousands of years old.

There are 100 archaeological sites at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station and I’m obsessed with every one! Prehistoric mounds, historic cemeteries, lighthouse, launch sites and even a community called Stinktown. More to come on an FPAN blog soon…

Meet Ft. Mose!

From BAR’s fb page:

Fort Mose, located just north of St. Augustine, was created by decree of the Spanish Governor of Florida in 1738. The fort and adjacent lands were set aside for freed blacks and escaped British Carolina colony slaves seeking refuge provided they agreed to convert to Catholicism.
The grounds where the village and fort once stood are now part of Fort Mose Historic State Park (center.) Selected artifacts excavated at the park and curated at BAR Collections include left to right Warner’s Safe Kidney & Liver Cure, Piso’s Cure for Consumption, and Mellin’s Infant’s Food.
