Native American skeleton found in New Hampshire

Published on December 5th, 2011 | by Admin


Construction work on a home in New Hampshire has unearthed a Native American skeleton which dates back hundreds of years.

State Police and the New Hampshire State Archaeologist Richard Boisvert asked that the location of the home be withheld. Boisvert said the bones were those of a Native American who lived around 300 to 400 hundred years ago.

As of Wednesday, the archaeologist was almost done with the scene. More details about the person, including his or her gender, will emerge in the coming weeks as experts continue to study the remains. Nothing else was found with the body. Identifying the specific tribe the person came from would be difficult, said Boisvert.
