100307: Some of the last points found in wash
area of sand pit, wash was running thru the middle of old habitation site

Then the pit reorganized the layout and operations which stopped the great artifact hunting...........

You can no longer remove artifacts from Florida rivers, so you have to go elsewhere
But you can remove fossils with a fossil permit from the state.
