A large flat semi-round jreenstone nearly 34 pound was op of the ribcage crushing the ends of some of the ribs. Perhaps his was placed to prevent from reaching the body. "Second, the long cut in the emple of this orthocephalic skull could have been a tomahawk causing death," writes Mr, Yinger. Ralph Fout, who has been working with Mr. Yinger, excavated female Indian's skeleton just a week ago at the same site. He estimated that the skeleton was of a 15-year-old girl. The skeleton had long tubular conch-shell beads around the neck and one bead the nose. Two shell pendants also were found, one at the right of femur, another under the skull.
