The remains of a 20-30 year old woman have been found by a utility crew working in Florida.

“It’s either Tequesta or the member of a people that predates the Tequesta,” said Bob Carr of the Archaeological and Historical Conservancy in Davie. “It’s unusually well preserved, considering it’s been under a highway with thousands and thousands of cars going over it every day.”

The woman, about 5 feet tall and about 20 to 30 years old, will now be analyzed by state and local archaeological authorities and then reburied in about a month in a secret location, with Seminole and Miccosukee Indians conducting the ceremony.
