Septic company finds Chamorro remains

by Nick Delgado

Guam - Ancient Chamorro remains were uncovered Wednesday in Agat. Septic company Todo Mauleg was digging in the village repairing sewer lines when the discovery was made.  State Archaeologist John Mark Joseph told KUAM News, "What happened was they were excavating and some of the wall fell down and exposed the remains so they weren't impacted in anyway and they will be left in place."

Joseph says the remains were found in an area located near an ancient burial ground.  He says they were able to determine they were of Chamorro descent because the location in the depth in the soil is below the Latte Period.
