Crew Finds Human Bones in Oakland County
Two sets of human bones that are believed to be at least hundreds of years old were found in Oakland County by an excavating crew clearing a site for a baseball field.

State Archaeologist John Halsey said the bones of an adult and child are likely 700 to 2,000 years old. The bones were found March 26 on White Lake Township property owned by the White Lake Presbyterian Church. The bones were turned over to the Oakland County Medical Examiner's Office.

"That's been a migratory path for native people for thousands and thousands of years," Township Supervisor Mike Kowall said of the area.

That's the whole thing.
