Ancient Native American mounds stall $15 million project

An archaeological find in Florida has ground a $15 million project to a halt when excavators found human teeth, bone fragments and tools, dating as far back as 5,000 years.
The $15 million project to flood 7,000 acres at the end of Malabar Road is stalled indefinitely as federal officials negotiate with the Seminole and Miccosukee tribes over how to proceed.
About a month ago, excavators found several human teeth, human and animal bone fragments and tools within the area to be flooded for the lake. The items were found during the excavation of oval- shaped mounds about 100 feet long and six feet high in the northern half of the Three Forks Marsh Conservation Area.
