Discovery of Historic Floor Delays Interment Ceremony for Cinnamon Bay Remains
Cinnamon Bay has proved to be a wealth of historical artifacts, from human remains to the recent discovery of a 17th century floor — in fact, there is so much history at the site, archaeologists are having a hard time finding a place to reinter human remains that have washed up from their original burial site.

The 17th century floor was discovered while exploring a site designated for the reburial of the remains, which have been washing up from their original burial site, now underwater a few hundred yards from the beach due to erosion.

A reburial ceremony is in the works for the human remains, which have been surfacing at Cinnamon Bay for more than 30 years.
