The Timucua were a group of indigenous people that lived in modern-day North Florida and South Georgia. This group of Native American people have evidence of dating between 1100 AD and 1300 AD. More than 2 centuries later, in 1562, Huguenot explorer Jean Ribaut arrived from France and landed in Timucua land, near Talbot Island. The Frenchmen created the colonial settlement, Fort Caroline, on the St. Johns River.
