Ventures into the Unknown

  • Hale G. Smith


My first contact with Southeastern historical archaeology came with the partial excavation of the Higgs Site (Higgs 1942; Smith 1949) about two miles south of the Sebastian Inlet, Brevard County, Florida. My excavations there were due to fortuitous circumstances that tie directly to John W. Griffin and a grant he received from Mr. George A. Zabriskie for excavation of the Higgs site during the summer of 1946.
