Dear Mr White:

This is to certify that the Florida State University
Archelogical Field school, under my direction, excav-
ated your property at 34 Marine St. (Block 26, Lot 1)
during the Spring and Summer of 1976, and the Spring
of 1977.

During this time, we determined that the site was
occupied most heavily during the first half of the
17th century (ca. 1600 1650) during the colonial
period. In the course of excavation, we did encounter
artifacts dating to before 1600, and at least 5 features
were excavated which appeared to have been deposited
during the latter part of the 16th century. Since no
structural remains dating to earlier than the first half
of the 17th century were located, however, I am unable
to state definitely at this time, that the site was
occupied during the 16th century. I do feel, however,
that there exists strong indications that 16th century
occupation did take place at Block 26, lot 1, which
further research should reveal.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you
again for your generous cooperation and contributions
of working space, your time and the use of your lot.
The site located on your property is certainly one of
the most important sites excavated so far in St. Augus-
tine, and has already gone far in helping us to
understand the 16th and 17th century Spanish occup-
ation of the town.

Since /X2

Dear Mr. White:

This letter is in response to your request for a
statement concerning the antiquity of the De Leon
site (SA-26-1).

During Florida State University's excavations there in
1976 and 1977, under my direction, we encountered
a large amount of European colonial material, the
dates of which covered the period from the mid-sixteenth
century through the 20th century. Two important
features were encountered; a well and a house structure
(in the present northwest corner of the lot); both
of which appear to have been abandoned in the early 17th
century. The initial dates for their construction cannot be
precisely determined; however, due to the presence on the site
of trash deposits dating from the second half of the 16th
century, it could be argued that the house and well could
have been constructed in the late 16th century.

It seems apparent that human occupation and activity
took place in lot 1, block 26 ; quite continuously
between about 1580 and the present day. The materials
documenting this interpretation can be found in the
MA thesis by Ms. Teresa Singleton, which I have given to
you.

Please feel free to contact me if you should have any
questions.

Sincerely,


Kathleen A. Deagan
Assistant Professor of Anthropology
