Archaeologists associated with Atlanta's Fernbank Museum of Natural History have been excavating a 2,000-acre (8.1 km2) plot near McRae, approximately a mile away from the Ocmulgee River. They have found evidence of a Spanish settlement dating back to the first half of the 16th century. The archaeologists suspect that the artifacts originated from a settlement founded by Lucas Vázquez de Ayllón in 1526.
Additional research suggested that the site was one visited by the de Soto Expedition of 1541. They recovered Murano glass beads, which would have been brought for trading with Native Americans; pottery fragments, and iron weapons. Some of the beads bear a chevron pattern, which is believed to be a hallmark of the de Soto expedition, due to the limited timespan in which such beads were produced. Excavations have also produced six metal objects, including three iron tools and a silver pendant. This is further west than scholars had earlier believed that the de Soto expedition had traveled.

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.
Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
