Even the ground under our feet has stories to reveal

Even the ground under our feet has stories to reveal

The Ximenez-Fatio House Museum sits atop a treasure trove of artifacts stretching back centuries.

Famous archaeologists such as Kathy Deagan of the University of Florida and former St. Augustine City Archaeologist Carl Halbirt have led more than 15 digs to investigate who lived here long ago and find clues to how they lived.

For example, discoveries from the boarding house period have helped historians interpret this long-forgotten era.

We look forward to more important findings from future digs at the site.
