Guam - Archaeologist found a third burial at the Ylig Bridge Construction Project site in Yona. The discovery of the remains were made while officials were monitoring the area, as part of the required memorandum of agreement with the Guam State Historic Preservation Office, the Department of Parks and Recreation, the Federal Highway Administration and the Department of Public Works.
Construction work was again put to a stop in the area the remains were found and archaeologists will be exhuming the findings. The SHPO will also be conducting a special ceremony before the remains are removed from the site. It's unknown how long construction will be delayed at this time.
Ancient human remains believed to be from the Latte Period were unearthed at the sedimentation portion of the site last week. Experts will be examining those remains and will be holding a proper burial ceremony back at the site at a later date.
Officials say other ancient artifacts found will be given to the Guam Museum for curation.
