Unearthing the Missions of Spanish Florida

Mission San Damian de Escambe was founded in 1639, after the chief of the village of Escambe, also known as Cupaica, was baptized in St. Augustine. It was home to hundreds of families during the peak of the mission period in Apalachee Province. In 1704, it was destroyed by forces marshalled by James Moore. The site was first identified by B. Calvin Jones in 1968 during a survey of proposed borrow pits slated for use in the construction of Interstate 10. In 2013, 8LE120 was investigated by BAR archaeologist Jerry Lee. This chapter re-examines both investigations and the resulting artifact assemblages to offer a more holistic interpretation of the site.
