Ancient human remains found in North Dakota

Human remains found during construction of a dike at Devil’s Lake in North Dakota may date back to 1100AD.

The Historical Society has evidence of humans in North Dakota for the past 13,000 years, Picha said.

Spirit Lake tribal officials will decide what to do with the lake remains, Picha said. The remains have been left in place and secured at the site, he said. The exact location has not been publicized.

“It’s a burial site, and we don’t really want to disrespect the remains of these people,” Nelson said.
