Faught’s reflections on his research in the Apalachee Bay/Big Bend areas of Florida provide candid and important insights into what is arguably the first real systematic archaeological study of offshore prehistoric sites. Faught’s systematic surveys, predicated on a theoretical model for site distributions, mimics, to an important degree, the then contemporaneous research conducted off the Texas and Louisiana shores by Sherwood Gagliano, Charles Pearson, et al. One salient difference in these studies was the funding: the Texas-Louisiana research was funded by federal dollars. The results of both studies set standards for offshore prehistoric research. An important historical difference lies in the fact that more recent research, detailed in later chapters of this volume, have built on Faught’s findings while no follow-up studies have occurred for the other seminal work of Gagliano, et al.
