The remains of a church which dates back to the late 17th century has been found in Florida. Now archaeologists are trying to determine if it is one of two possible churches.

First, we know that in 1677, the governor of Florida ordered a stone church built in St Augustine to honor Nuestra Señora de la Leche. This may be the foundation.

Second, we know the mission church was burned by the English in 1702. Degan’s team may have located the foundation of the church that was rebuilt after the English invasion.
