& THE FLORIDA HUMANITIES COUNCIL present:

“BEFORE JAMESTOWN: EUROPEANS, AFRICANS, & INDIANS IN LA FLORIDA, 1513-1607”

This presentation explores the early history of European settlement efforts in Florida.  Learn about the remarkably rich, yet much neglected history of colonization in the US southeast in the 16th Century, a process that began almost a century before Jamestown.  This presentation will give the audience an excellent background to understand our rich Spanish history.

Dr. Michael Francis received his PhD in History in 1998 from the University of Cambridge. Between 1997 and 2012, Dr. Francis taught at the University of North Florida, where he also served briefly as Chair of the Department of History.   In 2011, US Secretary of the Interior, Ken Salazar, appointed Dr. Francis to serve on the St. Augustine 450th Commemoration Commission.  He is currently  Professor of History at USFSP as the Hough Family Endowed Chair in Florida Studies.
