Archaeologists seek early Spanish evidence in Georgia

Archaeologists working on a dig in southern Telfair County, Georgia, believed they were looking for a 17th century Spanish mission. Instead they found something even more interesting: evidence of Spanish explorer Hernando de Soto's 1540 travels through the state.

During a two-year excavation, the experts have unearthed a number of artifacts including beads dating to the 1500s, too early to have belonged to the the 17th century mission.
