Scientists Discovered Remains Of US’s Early Colonists Under A Florida Wine Shop

The skeletal remnants of several children beneath a wine store, the last location one might have imagined to check out, have recently been unearthed by Florida archaeologists. However, there will be no police investigation for the Florida wine shop located in St. Augustine, the oldest city in the U.S., because those skeletons are just simply at the same age as the city’s.

What is more, archaeologists thought that these bones might have been from the earliest colonists in all of North America. The remains of 7 people including 3 children have been discovered up to now, including a young white European female.

Though the investigations on the rest of the remnants are still going on, experts have indicated that a pottery piece might have been the evidence that the time of these people’s death was around 1572 and 1586.

“What you’re dealing with is people who made St. Augustine what it is,” Carl Halbirt, St. Augustine city archaeologist, says. “You’re in total awe. You want to treat everything with respect, and we are.”

It was the Hurricane Matthew occurring the previous year that allowed the archaeologists to unearth the construction, as the flooding resulted from the hurricane persuaded the wine shop’s owner to repair his wooden floor, built in 1888, where the soil beneath has remained untouched ever since, forming a virtual time capsule.

Surprisingly, experts also confirmed that in the past, the current location of the wine shop is the ancient Church of Nuestra Señora de la Remedios. “The mission churches across Florida buried everybody in the church floor,” Ellsbeth Gordon, an architectural historian, revealed. “It was consecrated ground, of course.”

According to archaeologists, the church was ignited to pieces in 1856, before being devastated once more in 1599 by natural disaster, and was once again burnt down in 1702. That last time may have been for good, but until then the church had been the main meeting point for a colony that had been established 55 years before the Pilgrims ever set foot on Plymouth Rock.
