Fort Caroline ~ The Search for America’s Lost Heritage
It is one of the strangest chapters in American history. All Early Colonial archives and maps place the French Colony of Fort Caroline (1564-1565) and the original location of St. Augustine on the coast of the State of Georgia, 90 miles north of the locations now stated by almost all contemporary books and online references.
The massive walls of Fort Caroline were built to hold a planned 1000 colonists. These ruins eluded archaeologists. Hundreds of thousands of dollars have been spent over the past 80 years by the Federal government, State of Florida and Florida universities in fruitless archaeological expeditions to find some evidence of Fort Caroline in Florida. There is none.
