Cataloguing Franciscan Missions of La Florida

The development of an online archive of archaeological materials from three Franciscan mission sites in Florida that document contact between Native Americans and Spanish colonists during the 17th and 18th centuries.  The project would catalog and digitize 61,000 artifacts, making them and associated field records, site maps, and photographs publicly available.

The development of a set of standard analytical procedures and a systematic cataloguing system for artifacts from Spanish mission sites. This will allow researchers to explore the missionization experience in the Spanish colony of La Florida based on a digital archive of artifact collections held by the Florida Museum of Natural History.
