A construction site where a San Jose city crew unearthed human bones early this week appears to be an ancient American Indian burial site, according to police and a local archaelogist.
Workers were digging Tuesday morning to install a culvert on Sanborn Avenue near Alma Avenue when they struck what appeared to be human bones.
Construction has been temporarily stopped on the site until the city negotiates disposition of the ancient remains with the Native American Heritage Commission, a California body that ensures protection of such sites.
