Oak Hill in Volusia County, Florida — The American South (South Atlantic)
The Timucuan Way of Life
[Seminole Rest Historic Site]
Archeologists believe that the Timucuans lived in the wooded area in the distance. The trees provided wood for fuel and shelter, while freshwater springs supplied water.
In 1564 illustrator Jacques LeMoyne came to Florida as part of a French expedition. His vivid drawings depicting Timucuan life are our only visual record of this now-extinct civilization that occupied much of Florida for thousands of years.
