Divers Seek Ancient History In North Port Spring

Published July 15, 2008
Little Salt Spring was discovered to be an underwater archaeological site in the late 1950s.

Archaeologists long have treated Little Salt Spring as an untapped gold mine of ancient artifacts, and the isolated spot is considered "one of the most important archaeological sites in the state, and perhaps the nation, for its wealth of information about the first Floridians more than 12,000 years ago," say officials with The Florida Aquarium.

The sinkhole was donated to the University of Miami in 1982.
