Columbus arrived in the New World, 100,000 people (or more) already
lived in Florida and had been here for thousands of years. These
primitive people built mounds for ceremonial and practical purposes.
Though most mounds have succumbed to the bulldozer, many still
exist and may be visited. Author I. Mac Perry tells where to find
them, describes what was found when they were excavated, and explains
what recovered artifacts tell us about the lives of the ancient
people who left them behind. Organized by county, with sidebars,
charts, photographs and drawings.
