Because of the great number of pages, it was necessary to devote three volumes of reprinted works to the state: one on northwest Florida, one on east Florida, and the present volume on west and central Florida. When it came time to divide the works into three parts, some problems became apparent. First, Moore's expeditions were often wide-ranging, covering great expanses of territory that did not necessarily fit our tripartite division. Several of the expeditions overlapped different parts of the state.
At the Hopson Mound (8LA47), the predominance of Dunns Creek Red pottery suggests a St. Johns Ia or early Ib (ca. D. 100600) date (Milanich 1994:247). The Tavares Mound (8LA52), which had already been disturbed prior to Moore's Page 17 excavations, yielded mainly plain, red-colored pottery (Moore 1895b:536). If this was Dunns Creek Red, the mound would most likely date to St. Johns Ia or early Ib, as in the case of 8LA47. Moore's (1895b:Plate LXXXVI) illustration of a Weeden Island Incised sherd corroborates this general dating of the site.
His reason for switching his focus to the western part of the peninsula is clear when one reads the first page of his initial west coast paper (Moore 1900:351). Moore had been shown the spectacular wooden and painted artifacts excavated at Key Marco by Frank Hamilton Cushing (1896) and was clearly hoping to duplicate Cushing's success. Moore was not to find another site like Key Marco, however, and his disappointment is obvious in a sentence on the second page of the report: "Never before had we set out so thoroughly prepared for work and never did our efforts meet with so little success" (Moore 1900:352).
