Describes the excavations of the Ross Hammock Site, located a little southeast of Oak Hill, Florida. The excavations were made in 1963 to evaluate the site's archaeological potential. The authors believed that the site was probably occupied about 2000 years ago. Includes a brief account of an investigation of a nearby 19th century salt evaporation works site.
