How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

• You must actually visit the site in person to claim a find on this cache. No "vitrual visits" will be allowed. For more information see this forum thread.

• Because there is no logbook to sign, you must complete another requirement in order to prove that you visited the site. Please see the Requirements section below for specific logging requirements for this cache.

• Answers to any questions must be emailed to me through my profile, not posted to your log (even if encrypted). After all, posting the answers to the cache page kinda defeats the point of having questions...

• I reserve the right to quickly delete logs which contain the answers, or if I do not believe that you visited the site in person.

Although you may not realize it, you have heard of this area before (well, maybe indirectly, but the name of this area is familiar to you, I hope!) What is it called? You'll have to travel there to find out!

The coordinates will lead you to a round monument near the lakeshore. The land the former village resided on was flooded during the creation of Tellico Lake, but this marker stands as a reminder of the rich history of some of the area's first settlers. As countless signs remind you, this area is of great archeological significance and no objects should be dug up or removed from this site. The surrounding lands are best left undisturbed. It is for this reason that I have not hidden a traditional cache in this area.


• Email me the answers to all four of these questions:

1) A drawing of what object is carved into the ground in the very center?

2) How far away did this village stand?

3) What was the original name of this place, and what is this name today?

4) In what year was this name first used?

Additional Hints (No hints available.)
