In conjunction with the 450th anniversary of the founding of St. Augustine, the Florida Museum of Natural History’s Historical Archaeology program will resume excavations at Mission Nombre de Dios. Excavations will run August 24-September 11, and we will be investigating the remains of the coquina church ordered built in 1677 and the attached convento.
