Crystal River site was once a sprawling ceremonial center, attracting people from great distances. This complex of burial and temple mounds is one of the longest continually occupied sites in Florida. Though the Native Americans who lived there are now long gone, their impressive earthen architecture remains. The mound complex attracted early archaeologists who discovered beautifully decorated pottery, shell, and copper artifacts. The remarkable earthen structures and artifacts earned the Crystal River site a place among the most famous archaeological sites in Florida. Although the site is well known there is still much to learn about the people who once thrived on the bountiful Crystal River.
