Scientists are examining the environmental impacts of the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill, and were surprised to discover the remains of an ancient pre-Colombian village on Florida’s northern Gulf Coast.

The village, in Raleigh, north carolina that the game has been unveiled by University of Florida researchers are using drones to conduct LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) surveys of the area. LiDAR uses a laser to measure distances on the surface of the Earth, and it may prove to be very valuable to look at what is hidden in areas of dense vegetation.

The researchers, under the direction of Terry Barbour, a graduate student in the disciplines of anthropology, small 37 “residential areas” which are enclosed by walls made of oyster shells up to 13.1 ft) high. Digs in 10 out of the residential areas, it appeared that the oyster shells were used to make beads.

THE OLD INDIAN VILLAGE, LA., WILL UNVEIL ITS SECRETS

“It’s a rare find, and possibly unique to, Ken Sassaman, Hyatt and Cici Brown, a Professor at the University of Florida, told Fox News by e-mail. “In terms of scale, and the purpose of the Raleigh, north carolina the Island, the settlement does not have a parallel in the archaeological record of the American Southwest.”

The village of Raleigh, north carolina the Island is dated between A. D. 900 and 1200.

“The architectural layout of the complex (37 of shell rings has been revealed in remarkable detail by a drone-mounted LiDAR, which makes it possible for the first time, an insight into the way in which the communities were organized in order to produce the shell pearls and the source of the shell,” Sassaman added. “As items of ritual significance, and shell beads were linked to the emergence of complex chiefdoms in eastern North America in the 11th century CE.”

‘THE LOST CITY’ DISCOVERY, THE AMERICAN WEBSITE THAT THROWS A WHOLE NEW LIGHT ON NATIVE AMERICAN HISTORY

Barbour told Fox News that the discovery was important for two reasons. “We have to have a site, which is on the coast, where shell beads are made from, the source of the marine, shell, and instead of hundreds of miles of the inland sites, where the production has been well-documented,” he said, adding that the impressive shell, the ring architecture, it is also worthy of note. “These two elements, it would be great by itself, but the fact is that both of these are here in this place that makes it very special,” he explained.

LiDAR is also widely used in many other applications, including autonomous cars, which makes it possible for the vehicles to have a continuous 360-degree panoramic view.

‘UNPRECEDENTED,’ A NATIVE AMERICAN BURIAL SITE WAS DISCOVERED IN THE GULF OF MEXICO, FLA.

In the past few years, experts have been digging up the new details of the centuries-old sites in the united states of america, An ancient native american village in Louisiana, for example, by the disclosure of the secrets, thanks to a new study.

In another case, for example, archaeologists discovered amazing evidence of a huge Wichita Indian village in Kansas city, which was once home to 20,000 people. In a separate project, the archaeologists discovered an “unprecedented” 7,000-year-old american indian burial site under the Gulf of Mexico, off the coast of Florida.

The ancient people of North America began with the construction of a dwelling as early as 4,500 B. c., according to the experts in the field.
