(Fox News) Archaeologists working on a dig in downtown Miami have found the remains of a Tequesta Indian village that could date back 2,000 years, making it one of the most important pre-historic sites found in the United States, media reports said Tuesday.
"What's unusual and unique about the site is that it's this huge chunk of land where a major part of this ancient Tequesta village site is preserved," archaeologist Bob Carr told The Miami Herald.
The site is "one of the earliest urban plans in eastern North America. You can actually see this extraordinary configuration of these buildings and structures," Carr said.
