Summary

The purpose of this pXFR testing was to build an accurate reference database for the elemental values of sixteenth century glass artifacts related to Florida’s First Spanish Cultural Period. Glass trade beads help form the framework needed to often identify and build a date range for an archaeological site. These beads that were tested were discovered in context with other sixteenth century artifacts at the confirmed 1539 Hernando de Soto encampment near Orange Lake, Florida.

The Florida Department of State, Division of Historical Resources, Bureau of Archaeological Research, Master Site File number associated with this project is MR03538.
