Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary by Archaeologist Matthew Lawrence
February 19 2018 Time: Monday 6:30 pm FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
Island Community Church, mm 83
Matthew Lawrence, Maritime Archaeologist presentation will be on the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary which encompasses one of the greatest navigation hazards in the western hemisphere. Maritime traffic for the past 500 years has skirted perilously close to more than 100 miles of barely submerged coral reefs. The Florida reef tract combined with imprecise navigation, tumultuous weather, and human error have led to thousands of shipwrecks. Matthew Lawrence will relate what archaeological study of this underwater cultural heritage is revealing about the Atlantic maritime world. Matthew has worked for the Office of National Marine Sanctuaries since 2002. Until his recent transfer to Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, he served as an archaeologist and the maritime heritage coordinator for Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary offshore of Massachusetts. A graduate of East Carolina University’s Program in Maritime Studies, Matthew's professional research interests include remote sensing survey, nineteenth century steam navigation and the U.S. coasting trade. Matthew is an avid SCUBA diver who enjoys underwater photography. For more information contact Barbara at 305-393-0940
