"A significant contribution to Spanish colonial studies."--Bonnie McEwan, director of archaeology, San Luis Archaeological and Historic Site

"An excellent book that will stand as the definitive historical and archaeological reference on early Pensacola . . . and will undoubtedly become a classic."--Gregory Waselkov, University of South Alabama

This examination of the Pensacola presidio and its fort during the first Spanish colonial period provides a rich inventory of artifacts and new interpretations of life among the 18th-century settlers and their evolving interactions with local native populations and with Mobile and Veracruz.  Based on long-term interdisciplinary study and excavation, Judith Bense‚Äôs book provides the first intensive account of an early colonial Spanish presidio in La Florida.  As such, it will be of interest to researchers throughout the Spanish borderlands from California and northern Mexico to Florida.
