Dr. Turner at work in the National Archives. Dr. Sam Turner, the Director of Archaeology at LAMP, is also an acclaimed historian and trained paleographer. Paleography, or the study of ancient script, is a necessary skill for any historian studying St. Augustine, as the transcription and translation of 16th-19th century Spanish manuscripts are vital to our understanding of the former colony. Dr. Turner's dissertation research focused on inter-island Spanish Caribbean trade, some of which related to individuals involved in the early history of Florida such as Ponce de Leon.

...
One of Dr. Turner's current projects is the transcription of St. Augustine's port records from the Second Spanish Period (1784-1821).
...
This work is being carried out not only by Dr. Turner but by several volunteers working under his supervision, and new documentary discoveries are being made on a regular basis.
