Guam - The ancient remains found at the Ylig Bridge construction site this week have been removed from the area. Department of Public Works Director Joanne Brown says they continue to work with the State Historic Preservation Office before lifting the stop work order for the sedimentation basin portion of the project
She says however the finding will not delay the ongoing project for the temporary Ylig Bridge. Brown added, "If they begin to see any signs of remains or certainly any type of artifacts we make sure that we follow the proper procedures we anticipate here with Ylig that would happen simply because of the location and certainly a few years ago when they did the pavement up the road here there were a number of archaeological sites that were found."
The human remains are believed to be from the Latte Period. Other ancient artifacts found, officials say will be given to the Guam Museum for curation.
