MTSU Professor Tanya Peres was recently granted access to artifacts from a late prehistoric/early contact period site on a private residence in Chattanooga that adds to the body of evidence suggesting Spaniards traveled through the Tennessee region and traded with local Native Americans.

This video shows Peres, associate professor of anthropology, who recently studied various pieces of Native American craftsmanship from the Chattanooga site in her Peck Hall archeology laboratory.
