Investigators from the state Office of Archaeological Research visited the site at the end of last week, said Gulf County Sheriff Joe Nugent.

Researchers have reported close to where they were found the bones and other artifacts in a family camping weekend originally documented Native American burial site, as had been suggested by local amateur archaeologist Herman Jones.

With the site is already documented, the archaeology excavation of the site took place, only a surface search, Nugent said.

More skeletal remains have been recovered and is believed to be of Indian origin. If Native American remains are identified they are handed over to Indian authorities.
