Archaeologist Dr. Ryan Franklin, with the Archaeological and Historical Conservancy, holds axes made more than 1,000 years ago from shells during an excavation on a site where the conservancy found evidence that at one time a Tequesta Indian village stood on the site, which would have been at the mouth of the Miami River on May 10, 2013 in Miami, Florida. The dig in present day's downtown is on the future site of Metropolitan Miami?s new movie theater. Most of the artifacts that are discovered will be displayed at HistoryMiami. The excavation is expected to wrap up this summer with the movie theater scheduled to open toward the end of 2014/early 2015.
