History buffs might be interested in checking out this story:  Ancient Village discovered in Downtown Miami.

Archaeologists uncovered an ancient Native American village that could date back 2,000 years in Miami:

* That’s 1,200 years before William Wallace challenged the English Army to a duel at Stirling.

* That’s 1,500 years before Columbus sailed over on the Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria.

* That’s 1,700 years before my great great great great great great great grandmother got caught in the middle of a Witch Hunt in Salem, Mass.

Well, you get the idea.  It was a LONG time ago.  It’s being called “one of the most significant prehistoric sites in the US.”

And to think it almost got buried under an Entertainment Center.

Cool save!

Aah . . . that’s better!
