Native Americans of Northeast Alabama

The Times-Journal Published January 01, 2004 7. Fascinating Finds: After months of digging, examining and logging, scientists finished their work at “Dead Man’s Curve,” and an ancient burial site was uncovered. A study was ordered before work on widening Highway 11 could begin.

What was discovered was truly amazing. More than 100 sets of human remains were unearthed near Wills Creek, some dating back as far as 7,000 B.C., and some as recent as 700 A.D.

Cassandra Hill, a forensic osteologist who has worked similar finds throughout the Southeast and Northeast, called the dig one of the most significant she had seen.
