    That is awesome news. Thanks for sharing. Would love to know what they find when they are completely done excavating it. Assuming the archeaologists are going to excavate.

    They are still at work on this site.Updates can be found on the OCALA STAR BANNER link posted above.
    The DeSoto site is not too far from CSA Capt J J Dickinson's "SUNNYSIDE" plantation at Orange Springs or CSA Fort Brook on the Oklawaha River.
