Excavation planned for Native American canals
Published on April 17th, 2012 | by Admin0
Before the arrival of Europeans in the early 16th century, Indians built a series of canals in South Florida, including a 2.5-mile canal that connects Pine Island Sound to Matlacha Pass through Pineland and a 7-mile canal system at Ortona.
All of South Florida’s canals from that era were built to facilitate trade.
