Ancient Human Bones Were Discovered At This Indiana Construction Site In May

In May of 2021, construction workers working the site of the future Bartholomew County judicial building in Colombus, Indiana, found something startling: human remains. Human bones were found during excavation and, naturally, a discovery like this prompts an investigation. What was discovered was anything but uninteresting: the bones found were at least 2,000 years old, and likely belong to a small group of Native persons buried there long ago. These ancient remains found in Indiana open the door for us to take a closer look at the people they’re thought to belong to.
