Bones found of Indians from 1,000 years ago
The remains of people who archaeologists said may have lived along the Tennessee River more than 1,000 years ago will be moved from a Bridgeport plant expansion site.

For the past several months, a Georgia archaeology group has been studying human remains and materials found at the site at U.S. Gypsum, said state archaeologist Stacye Hathorn. The company, which found the remains of several American Indians when it began building a drywall plant in Bridgeport in 1998, discovered more within the past year, she said.
