Two men in Chico, California have found the remains of a prehistoric Native American child between the ages of 2-4.

The sex of the child has not been identified. The cause of death is unknown, but police said the remains showed no signs of trauma.

Based on the discovery of stone artifacts found near the burial site, officials with the anthropology department at Chico State University believe the remains could predate contact between settlers and the Maidu tribes native to the area.
