Archaeological Ethics, USF and Dozier School for Boys

The following was written by Dr. William Lees, a well-known archaeologist and the Executive Director of the Florida Public Archaeology Network.

It took great courage for Dr. Lees to become the first archaeologist to publicly question the ethics of the University of South Florida's ongoing quest to dig up the cemetery at the Dozier School for Boys.

Whether you agree or disagree with the project, please take the time to read the thoughts presented by Dr. Lees as they open the door for a higher level discussion that we should have in Florida about the sanctity of human burials.
