    FL - Hillsborough Co., Bones found, Mar'08 - Ancient

    Hi
    Does any one know more on this or please keep us updated.


    TAMPA - Hillsborough County deputies have confirmed that some bones found by a construction crew on Tuesday are human.

    Workers digging a septic tank near Florida Utility Trailer Inc., a semi-trailer dealership at 7808 N. U.S. 301, found the bones about 3 feet underground. They called the sheriff's office at 3:13 p.m.

    Investigators with the Hillsborough County Medical Examiner's Office determined that the bones are human. Detectives and an archaeologist from the University of South Florida will visit the scene today.

    The bones were unearthed in near Harney Flats, known for its archeologically significant sites that have been calculated at 10,000 to 12,000 years old, Estabrook said.

    Buried under the sandy soil, the bones have become mineralized, which indicated they have been there a long time, Estabrook said.

    "They're likely prehistoric," he said.
