Discovery of Ancient Calusa Indian Canal in

Naples Florida

A team of archaeologists, including Bob Carr from
 the Archaeological & Historical Conservancy,
followed a backhoe as it dug trenches for a new
water line in downtown Naples.
The man-made canal
has been known to scholars since the nineteenth
 century when it was first
 documented by a
survey in 1874.

Locating the canal was aided with maps from Todd Turrell's book Naples Waterfront History -
Changes
in Time. Funding for radiocarbon
dating was provided by Mr. Turrell and
 by Mrs. Lavern N. Gaynor
and
the Naples Backyard History
Old Naples Museum
