What county? Indian burial sites are fairly common in some areas. The few times I ever found any, we made sure we let the landowner know and then respect their wishes.

It is, as you see, somewhat conspicuous. I'm mainly trying to ID the thing to satisfy my own curiosity, but I may notify the owner (the state) unless local cavers feel that this could create complications for them.


Talk to Gerald Moni. Generally, if there are known human bones in caves, especially Native American, this information IS NOT in the narrative.

Or Contact Alan Cressler as he has A LOT of knowledge on bones in caves in this area (TAG).
