Because before right now you didn't know anything about Wetumpka Archaeologists unearth buried ‘treasures’
Insight into the lives of ancestral Creek Indians, and maybe some evidence of nomadic tribes before the Creeks, are being unearthed in Wetumpka.

The Alabama Department of Transportation started working in August 2007 to create a new road near where the Old Wetumpka Highway is currently located. But progress was halted last month, when “human skeletal remains” were discovered. The University of South Alabama in Mobile outbid other contenders to undertake an archaeological survey of the site.
