Dr. C. Andrew Hemmings revisits the historical context for the Old Vero Beach site, famous for its controversial place in early Paleoindian studies in the U.S. This chapter also recounts the study of Early Man in Florida. Beyond this historical perspective, Dr. Hemmings provides a synopsis of the current research conducted at the site under his and James Adavasio’s direction. Important players in the study of early Florida, such as John Kost and Clarence Simpson, are included in the conversation. Together with the new study of Old Vero, Hemmings includes his and others’ research on both the Aucilla River (which this volume has mentioned several times) and the offshore research in the Gulf of Mexico. The Terminal Pleistocene landscape, and its biological and environmental setting, forms the concluding sections of the chapter.
