Prehistoric Woman’s Remains Recovered in Florida
Monday, January 13, 2014
DAVIE, FLORIDA—A utility crew discovered the intact remains of a woman who stood about five feet tall and was between 20 and 30 years old at the time of her death some 2,000 years ago. “It’s either Tequesta or a member of a people that predates the Tequesta,” said Bob Carr of the Archaeological and Historical Conservancy in Davie. The site, which was once a cluster of islands, was found beneath a road surface that is known to cover human remains and ancient artifacts. The remains will be reburied.
