Thousands of artifacts found in Silver Springs

Scientists have uncovered a treasure trove of buried materials in Silver Springs’ crystal clear waters.

Peculiar-looking trees in Silver Springs, Florida. This is the place were several Tarzan movies, starring the legendary Johann Weißmüller, were filmed.

The Ocala Star-Banner eports that University of Florida experts estimate they’ve uncovered some 10,000 artifacts, mostly ancient tools and “lithic debitage,” or the sharp flakes left behind during the making of arrows and spear tips.

The archaeologists surveying the property say the findings could land Silver Springs on the roster of America’s most historically significant venues.

The survey was mandated by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s deal with Palace Entertainment, which in January was granted an early exit from its lease so Silver Springs could become a state park. The transition required an archaeological survey.
