AGENCY: ACTION: Notice is here given in accordance with the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), 25 U.S.C. 3003, of the completion of an inventory of human remains in the possession of the Robert S.

The determinations in this notice are the sole responsibility of the museum, institution, or Federal agency that has control of the Native American human remains. The National Park Service is not responsible for the determinations in this notice. A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by Robert S. Peabody Museum of Archaeology professional staff in consultation with representatives of the Wampanoag Repatriation Confederation, on behalf of the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe; Wampanoag Tribe of Gay Head (Aquinnah) of Massachusetts; and Assonet Band of the Wampanoag Nation, a non–federally recognized Indian group. In 1951, a human remain representing a minimum of one individual was removed from the Rich Site (19–BN– 163) in Barnstable County, MA, by Harold Curtis. The human remains were transferred at an unknown date to Ross Moffett and later donated to the Robert S. Peabody Museum of Archaeology in 1969. No known individual was identified. No associated funerary objects are present. The isolated tooth documented in this inventory appears to come from the ‘‘black earth and shell’’ strata, an upper level of the site that is presumably a Middle Woodland/Late Woodland occupation. The Rich site (19–BN–163) is one of several sites on the Outer Cape that reflects a pattern of year–round occupation and increasing sedentism in the late Middle Woodland to the Late Woodland (Massachusetts Historical Commission 1987 Historic and Archaeological Resources of Cape Cod and the Islands). In addition to the area around Truro, where the Rich site is located, other comparable cores on the Outer Cape include Wellfleet Harbor and the Nauset area in Eastham. In each site, there is a concentration of settlement not previously seen in the archeological record and strong evidence for year–round occupation. This includes floral and faunal data, as well as an array of site locations (and orientations) in each core area that fits the known range of seasonally exploited resources (Francis P. McManamon, ed. Chapters in the Archaeology of Cape Cod, Volumes I and II, 1984). Concomitant with this evidence for year–round occupation are mortuary data that indicate a significantly different pattern than evident on earlier sites. This includes the use of defined cemeteries, as well as ossuaries, which elsewhere in the Northeast are strongly E:\FR\FM\29MYN1.SGM 29MYN1
