Brendan Burke, archaeologist with the Lighthouse Archaeological Maritime Program in St. Augustine, will speak on March 18 as part of the Historic St. Augustine Research Institute speaker series.



Burke’s speech, “How Greek Traditions Transformed the Waterfront,” will continue HSARI’s series on the forgotten people of St. Augustine.



Burke has a B.A. in Anthropology/History from Longwood University and a Master’s degree in Historic Archaeology from the College of William and Mary. During his graduate work Burke participated in the Great Dismal Swamp Landscape Study, a project that searched for and discovered lost escaped slave settlements from the 1680-1865 period.

From 2007-2009, Burke served as the Logistical Coordinator for LAMP's First Coast Maritime Archaeology Project, a $281,000 research project funded by the state of Florida. He has many research interests, including steam technology, side scan sonar data analysis and interpretation, and the local and regional history of shrimp boat building.

The Lighthouse Archaeological Maritime Program (LAMP) is dedicated to the investigation, interpretation and better understanding of the maritime history and archaeology of St. Augustine, the "First Coast" region of Florida, and beyond.

The Historic St. Augustine Research Institute is a collaborative project of Flagler College and the University of Florida, supported by the St. Augustine Foundation, Inc. Its purpose is to encourage, coordinate and disseminate active academic research related to the history, archaeology and historical architecture of St. Augustine, Florida, and to apply this research in support of historic preservation in the city.



This year’s HSARI series is entitled “St. Augustine’s Forgotten People.” Lectures are free and open to the public and are held at 7 p.m. in the Flagler Room of Ponce de Leon Hall, 74 King St., St. Augustine.
