In this companion volume to The Houses of St. Augustine, 1565 to 1821, Albert Manucy goes back in time to detail the first years of St. Augustine's settlement, from 1565 to 1700. Focusing on how the first Spanish colonists lived, Manucy describes the buildings and backyards of the early settlers and illustrates how the architecture of the Timucua Indians of Florida influenced Spanish colonial culture. Though the description of early St. Augustine is necessarily hypothetical, since all of the early structures were burned by Sir Thomas Moore in 1702, Manucy incorporates a broad range of scholarship in architecture, art, history, and ethnohistory to establish a provocative and convincing model of early colonial life. For years the leading architectural interpreter of St. Augustine and formerly a historian of the Castillo de San Marcos, a Fulbright scholar in Spain, and a member of the St. Augustine 1580 research team, Albert Manucy combines his expertise with a true gift for story telling.
