Native remains may hold up construction at Round Rock subdivision

The human burial is located within a part of the series of sites I've been recording over the last 9 years. From what I can tell the burial is in Late Archaic strata, but I'm heading down to the site to get a better idea from the Texas State archs on site.

As I suspected, the so called burial is right in the middle of a midden that has been heavily looted for at least 10 years. The sicking part about it is bones have been tossed all over the place throughout these years. I attempted to contact the former landowner several times over the years with no response...for obvious reasons. Now he has his money and it's the developers problem...
