Archeological Investigations at the Totten Key Complex – A Site with Possible Ties to the Sixteenth Century Spanish Mission at Tequesta

The Totten Key Complex (8DA3439) is located in southeast Florida in Biscayne National Park. Recent excavations by the National Park Service unearthed a surprising amount of early Spanish artifacts. The site represents approximately 900 years of Native American occupation from circa A.D. 750 to 1650. Native American ceramic fragments recovered at the site testify to trade connections throughout the state of Florida. Early Spanish artifacts may suggest direct ties with the Spanish mission at the nearby main village of Tequesta, which lasted from 1567 to early 1568.
