Central Texas Construction Crew Finds Ancient Bones

ROUND ROCK (March 8, 2014) Human bones unearthed this week by a construction crew working on a new subdivision in Round Rock are almost certainly the remains of Native Americans, authorities said.

Round Rock Police Cmdr. Alain Babin said an FBI anthropologist reviewed images of the bones and was "quite certain that they are ancient remains."

Anthropologists from Texas State University were set to go to the wooded area where roads for a new 225-home subdivision are being built.

The area is known to local residents as a good place to look for arrowheads.

If ancient American Indian remains are found on private land, the landowner must either, preserve the site or have a professional, such as a licensed funeral director, a coroner or a professional archaeologist, remove them, according to state law.
