Though we call archaeology “pre-history,” so much has been learned about the former inhabitants of the land we might almost omit the prefix. This is not nearly so true of Florida aborigines as it is of many other parts of the country; and what has been accomplished here has been done by scientists from outside the State: Moore, Wyman, Stirling, Hrdlicka, Fewkes, Willey and others. Recently two of our own young men have been avidly following an urge which must have been congenital by digging into the history before history of the peninsula. These are John W. Griffin of Daytona Beach and John M. Goggin of Miami, the one at the University of Chicago and the other in Peabody Museum at Yale University. Both have contributed some results of their investigations to this Quarterly. One has come back to Florida and it is hoped the other will also.
