WELCOME TO CENTRAL GULF COAST ARCHAEOLOGICAL SOCIETY (CGCAS),
THE TAMPA BAY CHAPTER OF THE FLORIDA ANTHROPOLOGICAL SOCIETY (FAS).
PARDON OUR SHAKER BOX DUST: WE ARE EXCAVATING A NEW WEBSITE. STAY TUNED FOR THE RESULTS . . .
CGCAS was organized in 1977. We are a State-chartered non-profit organization and have dozens of members from all walks of life. We are dedicated to the preservation and interpretation of Florida's great cultural heritage. Many of our members have professional association with archaeology, but we also have avocational/hobbyist members who enjoy being able to learn the history of the peoples who preceded us here in Florida and to study the artifacts they left behind.
Membership is open to anyone with a sincere interest in the cultural past of Florida and who is dedicated to the understanding and preservation of that heritage. Monthly meetings are held at the Weedon Island Cultural and Natural History Center in St. Petersburg. CGCAS conducts field trips to archaeological and historical sites, assists professional archaeologists in surveys and excavations, performs laboratory analysis of artifacts and fauna, and prepares reports of its findings. A monthly newsletter keeps members up to date on the Society's activities, upcoming events, book reviews, and other archaeological news.
