"Will long stand as a highly important reference on the area. The wealth of material summarized, and the inclusiveness of the bibliographical coverage, will assure this. More importantly, the book provides a framework which may be regarded as a series of hypotheses to be tested in the future, and suggests, both explicitly and implicitly, problems to be investigated in the field. In this respect it is undeniably the most significant single work which has appeared on this important area."--John W. Griffin, "The Florida Anthropologist"

First published in 1952, this book literally defined much of Florida archaeology and has remained the basis for all archaeological understanding of the St. Johns River area.
"Space and Time Perspective" is one of the first volumes to present the culture, history, chronology, and character of archaeological remains for an entire region of the Southeast, including artifact definitions and descriptions of sites long destroyed by construction and agricultural projects. A magnificent compilation of data, it also includes information collected from museums around the United States.
John Goggin was a pioneer in recognizing the significance of the environment in the interpretation of archaeological remains. His discussion of changing sea level and its effects on the suitability of coastal areas for supporting large populations has informed most subsequent interpretations of northeast Florida archaeology.

John M. Goggin, the first archaeologist to teach at the University of Florida, was recognized at his death in 1963 as the father of Florida archaeology.
