6000-year-old bones found in Indiana
Ancient human remains possibly dating back to 4,000 BCE have been unearthed in Greendale, Indiana (USA). Workers were digging when they saw the bones, that archaeologists have since taken to Indianapolis to determine their exact age. The remains might be those of two people.
The construction crew called Indiana Conservation Officer John Groover after the discovery. For now, the crews will continue building on the site, but it'll be a side-by-side effort with archaeologists, that will be on site next week, and will sift through the area for more ancient evidence."They found a knife there that's like 6,000 to 8,000 years old" Performance Construction spokesman Jason Molnar said.
