Inscription.  
Archeologists believe that women and children gathered shellfish along the shore, using their feet and hands or digging with sticks or rakes. Meanwhile. The men fished in the deeper waters of the lagoon or ocean, using fish traps, nets, barbed arrows, or spears.

What did the Timucuans look for when choosing a location to obtain food? What might cause them to return to the same spot repeatedly? Was this a clam-processing site as archeologists suggest or could it have had other purposes?
