Abstract: A discussion of peat deposits. When peat is dried it can be used as a soil additive or as a fuel. However, artifacts are often found buried in peat. Dr. Barbara Purdy, University of Florida Associate Professor of Anthropology, feels that peat mining should be slowed down to allow for the proper search for artifacts.
