"The Pompano Beach Mound (8BD7) in the City of Pompano Beach (Broward County, Florida) has statewide (regional) significance under Criterion Din the area of Archaeology: Prehistoric and Archaeology: Historic Non-Aboriginal, with a period of significance of Late Glades I through Glades III (AD 500-1763). This site has yielded, through at least eleven archaeological investigations, and it is likely to yield, due to protection by the City of Pompano Beach since 1926, information important to our understanding of themes related to Tequesta culture. Rampant coastal development has destroyed nearly all of the known Tequesta sites along southeast Florida's barrier islands, but the Pompano Beach Mound has survived. Indeed, Eck (2012:1) notes: ""(t)his is the last remaining burial mound south of Boca Raton for about 30 miles, until one reaches El Portal in Miami-Dade County."" Importantly, the site has been protected by the City of Pompano Beach since 1926, thereby increasing the probability that it contains intact deposits."
