    Spring Surprise: Lessons Learned and Unexpected Results of the Chassahowitzka Headsprings -
    Archaeological Assessment and Monitoring Project

    In 2013 SEARCH conducted underwater archaeological investigations and monitoring at the Chassahowitzka Headsprings in Citrus County. Although the initial underwater survey yielded a sparse artifact count, hundreds of rare objects were recovered during the monitoring phase, including a Suwannee projectile point, a bone fishhook, an intact Pasco Plain bowl, Spanish majolica fragments, hand-carved wooden paddles, a large wooden fin effigy and over 100 bottles dating from 1885 to present. The project is important not only for the cultural materials it produced, but for the lessons learned; the results of which will undoubtedly influence future underwater archaeology work in Florida springs.
