Archeologists at Fort Christian Discover Bodies

Here is an interesting story from the St. Thomas Source:

Nov. 4, 2005 – Archeologists excavating at Fort Christian on St. Thomas Friday uncovered the remains of one and possibly two people.

"We identified a tooth, which speaks to a small child," Historic Preservation Office director Myron Jackson said.

Archeologist David Brewer said the site also contains several bones.

"There's a definite possibility there may be more than one person buried," he said.

Brewer said the initial discovery was made by the agency's archeological technician, Patton Mulford.

Brewer said he and his team were working on test sites to see what existed when Friday's discovery revealed itself.

Jackson said all burials will be treated with respect and disturbed as little as possible.
