Proposed "White Ranch" Material  

This article is neither "consensus" nor "peer reviewed" - despite its appearance, it's self-published and not accepted by the professional community. The actual current archaeological consensus is that the so-called "White Ranch Site" is dubious at best and an outright fraud at worst. The Boyer article represents the current archaeological consensus in Potano; accordingly, the White material has been deleted until a true peer-reviewed article is published- if ever.

International Journal of Archaeology[edit]

An article from this "journal" was added recently and then removed by another editor. The journal fails our criteria for reliable sources. [1]]. Doug Weller talk 15:17, 13 November 2016 (UTC)

Where is he from?[edit]

The article says that Hernando was from Castile. Castile Doesn't Exist Anymore. Should we put present-day Spain? Little Frog (talk) 21:21, 25 October 2017 (UTC)

Just because Castile doesn't exist anymore, doesn't mean that the change is retroactive. He was still born there.--Auric talk 01:09, 24 February 2018 (UTC)

The "White Ranch" Archaeological Hoax[edit]

The so-called "White Ranch" site, which a user has tried to re-add to this page and others throughout Wikipedia, has been debunked as a deliberate hoax; a paper was published at the Southeastern Archaeological Conference in 2016 exposing the issues with the claims made about the site, and a report was published with the Florida Division of Historical Resources, signed by the archaeologists who published the SEAC paper, stating that the "White Ranch" site does not exist. Boyer's work on the Richardson site (8AL100), which appears to be the genuine site of Soto's Potano and the later mission San Buenaventura de Potano, has been peer-reviewed and published in several venues, and nothing about the "White Ranch" site has ever passed muster with professional archaeologists. Accordingly, I have removed materials concerning the "White Ranch Site" until a peer-reviewed publication contradicting the current data is published, if ever.
