Englewood's history records back further than you may think

Indiana Jones in Englewood! How many Englewood residents know that this area we call home was once inhabited by a prehistoric native American society sufficiently developed to create pottery, carry on trade, and bury their dead with respect and ceremony? Or that Manasota Key was the site of a significant archeaological discovery of an ancient Cemetary Burial area dating back to 150AD? Jean Airey of Englewood told some of this fascinating story at the Warm Mineral Springs/Little Salt Spring Archaeological Club’s Sept 11th meeting. In Dec 1988, a 1,700 year old Indian cemetery was uncovered during the construction of a home on Manasota Key, artifacts pictured. The find resulted in a several-month archaeological excavation to document the remains that were about to be disturbed by construction. Most extraordinay, the dig was performed by ordinary Englewoodians trained on site to do the professional excavation job by a team of archeolgists! Learn more about our area’s fascinating past at The Warm Mineral Springs/Little Salt Spring Archaeological Society, meets 2nd Tues’s of the month, 7pm at the North Port Community United Church of Christ, 3450 Biscayne Dr, North Port. Next meeting Oct 9, 7pm. Newcomers and the public welcome! Info Hilda Boron 426•1719 or Linda Massey 426•7229 or wmslssas.org.
