Edward Gonzalez-Tennant is a GIS and open source digital archaeology expert. We brought him on to talk about GIS but the conversation quickly turned to his work at historic Rosewood - a predominantly African-American town in Florida that was destroyed by riots and the Rosewood Massacre over 100 years ago. EGT is using digital archaeology and traditional methods to reconstruct this town so visitors and descendants can know what it was like to live in that area at in the early 1900s.
