Maybe they were "walled up" from the rising tides, pehaps just enough to let water flow over the walls and when it recieded, it left an abundance of fish for meals, not a bad idea considering how close to the water they are. Not need much ag. for a small colony like that.
That is a pretty good thought. It could be benficial in the survival forum.
Well,after a few thousand years of living there they figured out that those big storms that come across the Atlantic will produce a storm surge.
Six hours southeast of Atlanta off the Georgia coast on Sapelo Island, archaeologists have unearthed the remains of an ancient walled city which predates the construction of many of Egypt's pyramids. Known as the Sapelo Shell Ring Complex, this ancient city was constructed around 2300 B.C.

Wasn't speaking about this site specifically though I can see it could have been taken that way. What I meant was discoveries such as these in present day which has escaped us for many years. Because of technology and the general mapping throughout the decades many believe that our history as is it taught now is the end all, when discoveries such as these force us to question whether we have it all figured out. Sorry for the confusion

Yes, well they were called the Annunaki in Sumeria and the Anakim in ancient Israel.

A pre-clovis civilization? Interesting. I would be willing to bet that the settlement was from Europeans.
Just my simple thoughts.

I love agriculture.
I think we humans are designed for agricultural life, not city life. The most beautiful societies were the agricultural ones in my opinion. Like the Japanese mountains villages.
I wish I could go back in time. I am sick of modern day.
Or the hill villages of Nepal, the fishing villages on the Mekong, etc an earlier life does have it charms but at the first infection, tooth ache or death of your wife and child in childbirth might change your mind.
How charming and alluring this was can be seen in the number of Europeans in the 18-19th century who went 'native' when encountering the Polynesian and Asian worlds

Thank you for the find OP bravo to you..I must ask in general why can the bulk of Science and people in general not get it into there heads that mankind is much ,much older then what we have been told ..Human remains and human settlements dating back further and further appear all the time at some point humanity as a whole needs to accept we know nothing of our real history and we should make it a priority to do as much research as we can on these very old sites we find ...

Europeans have never settled anywhere...They just go in and kill all the ingenious populations and take others land.
And unless you are a native indian from USA, your ancestors were part of this.
To comment on 'Europeans' never settling a place
They settled northern Europe which wasn't occupied by the Neanderthals plus Iceland & Greenland. They also occupied and settled on a number of islands around the world that they were the first to get to; Azores, Falklands, etc

Here is a hint to all you armchair anthropologists...
The Earth is NOT the same as it was in the 'past'. Great sections of the Earth are under water that used to be dry land... Sections that are dry land USED to be under water.
No Kidding. It's called PLATE TECTONICS. Even a basic understanding of that explains Earth changes.

This is the most peaceful time in human history. Small tribal groups tend to raid one another, up to 40% of the male population dying from violence in such societies.
Example 2-300 people today die in organize violence (war) in ww II it was 35,000 a day
I believe it is due to a disconnection with our past.
Anyone can read about our past as we presently understand it - why would disconnection from this cause x or y problem?
It is an appeal to authoritiy to take historical "facts" as truth. Like we need experts to tell us that people have ALWAYS used boats, and ALWAYS used trade.
No, at some point we didn't have boats and or trade, those are technologies we slowly developed. Give one guy a root in exchange for sharp rock is somewhat different than sending silk from China to Rome, just a tad more complex
Its about being the gatekeepers to truth, where the ultimate power is held.
Oh and who are 'they' and what are they hiding?
