Nice of 'em State Plans To Treat Ancient Indian Bones With Respect
The state, which has ultimate say about what happens to prehistoric bones found at a construction site this week, will try to bury the remains as close as possible to where they were found.

The recommendations of the Seminole and Miccosukee tribes will play a large part in the ultimate decision, said Ryan Wheeler, state archaeologist.

"Their recommendations are very important to us," Wheeler said.

Unless it really is 10-12,000 years old, then reburying it right away would be something of a tragedy.
