About the Event

Tom Garner is a Pensacola native and a local historian with more than 30 years of historical research experience. He attended the archaeology field school at UWF in 1983, which was then led by Dr. Judith Bense. Following his time attending the field school he worked at UWF as an archaeology field and lab tech for several years on a number of historic and prehistoric archaeological sites in the Pensacola area. In 1986, he alerted UWF to the location of the 1698 settlement of Pensacola, Presidio Santa María de Galve, which was the first permanent settlement of Pensacola and 139 years after the Luna settlement. Garner also contributed to the local community by founding the Pensacola Archaeological Society in 1985.
