Remains Found Near Marineland May Be Indian Burial Site
POSTED: 7:33 am EDT June 18, 2004
MARINELAND, Fla. -- Human remains discovered near the Marineland park are believed to be from an Indian burial site, and could halt a planned expansion of the attraction and other nearby developments.
Flagler County sheriff's deputy Michael Lutz said the remains included "a couple of teeth and a piece of bone." He said a medical examiner determined the remains were not new, and were not the result of a crime.
The Florida Bureau of Archaeological Research was called in to confirm whether the fragments are part of an Indian burial site. If graves are found, state law requires development to stop while a medical examiner and the state archaeologist investigate.
Marineland was the site of an extensive 1941 dig conducted by then-state archaeologist Vernon Lamb.
One of the three people who discovered the remains Thursday, David Zacharias, an assistant professor of neurobiology at the University of Florida's Whitney Laboratory, said he saw at least six bone fragments.
The planned development of a condominium complex and retail center nearby could also be affected if the remains are found to be part of a gravesite.
