FT. MYERS, Fla. - A pair of archaeologists have begun the search for historical artifacts at the site of Ft. Myers' new downtown library.
The historians have excavated at least one dig site in the construction zone near 2nd Street.
The 3.4 acre site is in the believed area of the city's namesake fort from the mid-1800's which was active during the Seminole and Civil wars.
Its unknown what the contracted experts will find, but they hope to gain more information on officers' quarter and building sites.
The digs are expected to continue through the early part of this week.
