We all know the Styx River from Greek mythology, but did you know there is one in Alachua County, Florida. Chasity Maynard, Gainesville Sun intern and student journalist, hosts this episode of the Classified History podcast, where we explore the history of a Native American cemetery dating back nearly 2,000 years. Dr. Neill Wallis, Associate Curator of Archeology at the Florida Museum of Natural History, will provide expert information on the Styx River in Alachua County and people associated with the Cades Pond culture. Wallis is co-author of the first academic article published on the site. It will help us discover the little-known history of this region, which lived and connected with the land long before it was colonized.
