The southeastern United States has one of the richest records of early human settlement of any area of North America.

Article number: Author biography Plain-language and multi-lingual abstracts PDF version. Nevertheless, they are unrecognised as such by most practicing palaeontologists. This review highlights the unique contributions to palaeontology made by underwater deposits as well as the technical and practical challenges facing underwater palaeontologists.

J&J Hunt Submerged Archaeological Site

The site which was discovered in is located in 3. Excavating submerged prehistoric sites on the continental shelf around Florida, and in other regions, helps archaeologists gain insight about prehistoric settlement patterns and aids in the reconstruction of the prehistoric landscape.

By recovering and analyzing prehistoric stone tools , terrestrial faunal remains, and terrestrial floral remains — such as, helps excavators infer that the site was not fully inundated throughout prehistory.

In the late Pleistocene and early Holocene periods, much of the continental shelf around Florida was exposed and occupied by prehistoric people. During these periods the continental shelf was a vastly different landscape and was home to a variety of plants and animals, including forests and megafauna. It was not until the Holocene, as sea water transgressed , that the continent shelf was transformed into marsh lands and brackish water , eventually becoming fully inundated.

Michael K. During the Late Glacial Maximum ca. At this time and for the next 7, years the sea-level was around 90 m lower than today's present level. Then around 14, B. It is important to note that as sea levels rose it forced people settled along the coast to move further and further inland. While the exact date of the peopling of the Americas is of major debate among archaeologists it is widely accepted that the first occupation occurred at least 13, — 14, years ago.

Currently, the oldest known widespread Paleoindian culture in North America is the Clovis culture. It is believed that the Clovis people occupied many parts of North America by 13, years ago, including Florida. The archaeological evidence suggests that the Archaic culture appears after the Clovis culture around 11, years ago.

The dates of these two cultures and the level of the sea at the time of their existence are very important to archaeologists. While many of these sites are unknown and lie underwater today, it is very important to remember that a site found on the coast or submerged in modern times was much farther inland in prehistory.

In fact there are currently no known "truly" coastal Paleoindian sites with a maritime tradition. Cores mostly without much cortex combine for a total of 18 percent of the tools, and hammer stones make up an additional 4 percent". However, there is little evidence of secondary retouch flakes at the site.

This is supported by the fact that no quarry areas have been located at the site. Among the artifact assemblage at the site there are several temporally diagnostic stone tools.

Of the temporally diagnostic stone tools recovered seventeen have been projectile points and fragments. Among them was one late Paleoindian Suwannee base and possibly one Suwannee perform along with five side-notched Bolen projectile points. There are also several temporally diagnostic artifacts from the Middle Archaic period at the site. These include three Florida Archaic straight-stemmed points and one contracting-stemmed point. These points date to around 7, to 5, B.

Organic remains are the decaying matter of a once living organism. In this context organic remains are very important in determining if and when an underwater archaeological site was above water.

Evidence of terrestrial faunal and floral remains found in undisturbed contexts strongly indicate that a site was at one time not submerged.

Further "Within the contact zone of the marine and dolomitized silty clay sediments, charcoal, bone, and early Archaic artifacts were found in abundance". By analyzing the organic remains and global paleoclimate data archaeologists and other scientists can determine very reasonable dates for when a site was not submerged and when it became fully inundated.
