  • Long Lost Florida Fort Found in Georgia

    Having attended Fort Caroline Elementary School in Jacksonville in the 1960s it comes as a bit of a surprise that the lost French fort built in 1564 wasn't built near Jacksonville as long thought but, according to researchers, was actually constructed 70 miles to the north on Rhetts Island at the mouth of the Altamaha River in Georgia.

    Fort Caroline was the first fortified settlement in what is today the United States being built a year before the Spanish established St. Augustine and its location was determined after cross-referencing maps housed at France’s national library (the Bibliotheque Nationale de France) written in 16th century French, Spanish, Latin and English, with modern coastal charts from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and maps published by the U.S. Geological Survey

    The next step is to begin excavation at the site.
