The Findings have been identified from the distinct expedition to Florida by the French navigator Jean Ribault. The scientists have also described two bronze cannons are three meter long and one is two meter long in size.


One marble antique with an attached coat-of-arm of the France’s king has also been found by the scientists. Robert Pritchett stated that in 1565, the findings were detained in a Spanish raid. He also added that the cannons and gravestones were being looted from Florida, on Spanish ships to Havana and Cuba.
