A graveyard was discovered at the site of the former Mission Santa Cantalina. The mission, built in 1686, was a fortified outpost facing the English and was also a mission site serving the coastal Indians. The burial site contains the remains of about one-hundred Indians. Dr. Jerald Milanich, curator of anthropology at the Florida State Museum, is overseeing the project.
