The ancient Indian burial site located below the Indian Mound near Gladstone Boulevard and Belmont was excavated by the city’s Recreation and Parks Department yesterday after a series of buried automobiles was discovered by a man walking his dog.
“We really didn’t know what to expect,” said department spokesperson Rory Davis. “It really has proven to be somewhat of a treasure trove in terms of artifacts excavated from the site.”
A city contractor moved heavy equipment to the site on Friday and excavation began in earnest Saturday April 1st. Neighborhood Association officials were unavailable for comment.
