We are the only non-profit scientific institute in central Florida
The Gulf Archaeology Research Institute (GARI) is a non-profit scientific research group based in Crystal River, Florida. The Institute has a long-term commitment to research prehistoric, historic, and underwater archaeology of Florida. The research objectives include the study of the origins of complex pre-Columbian cultures in maritime and riverine environments; the story of the relationships between the aboriginal cultures of Florida and Euro-american and the effect of contact; the study of the formation, deposition, and preservation of submerged, inundated and wet archaeological sites, historic shipwrecks; and the archaeology of the Seminole Wars in Florida. The institute has a strong program devoted to restoring disturbed sites and planning their long-term protection.
GARI presents at the 49th annual conference for the Society for Historical Archaeology.
