Oldest fortified settlement ever found in North America? Location of Fort Caroline may be in Georgia

Florida State University

Summary:
In an announcement likely to rewrite the book on early colonization of the New World, two researchers have proposed a location for the oldest fortified settlement ever found in North America. They believe that the legendary Fort Caroline, a long-sought fort built by the French in 1564, is located near the mouth of the Altamaha River in southeast Georgia.


The Fort Caroline site has not yet been excavated by archeologists.

We had a French fort near year.  The Karankawas had them for lunch.
