2000 YEAR OLD TEQUESTA VILLAGE DISCOVERED DOWN TOWN MIAMI

This is really exciting 
"A man works on the excavation site of the remains of a 2,000-year-old Tequesta village in Miami. The site, located where a residential and shopping development is planned, has yielded bones, tools and the configuration of building structures that could prove to be one of the most important prehistoric sites in the United States, according to reports.

 Evidently 2000 years ago what is now down town Miami looked like a great place to live.
Me I say preserve the village, not like you stumble upon a 2000 year old village everyday. 
There are layers of discoveries. 

THIS IS GREAT, THE DIG IS ON

Further reading on the extent of this massive site and developers plans for a hotel and movie theaters. Come on movie theaters over 2000 year old Indian village.
