Archaeological evidence for 4,000 years of coastal living on the northern Gulf Coast of Florida reveals lessons in displacement and resettlement that bear relevance to the environmental challenges facing modern Floridians. Having risen several meters since humans first settled the region, sea level continues to rise as climate warms, affecting the inhabitability of coastal sites, the productivity of marine biomes, and the ability of people to plan uncertain futures. Still, the long-term history of human settlement along the northern Gulf Coast is marked by a resiliency that enabled communities to response to environmental disaster and change without abandoning the coast. The history of both ancient and more recent coastal communities offers guideposts for changes yet to come.
