In 1934, human remains representing a minimum of one individual were removed from a burial context three miles north of Marked Tree, Poinsett County, AR. In 1994, the human remains were found in the museum’s collections during an inventory and then formally accessioned (DMNS catalogue number A1991.3). No known individual was identified. No associated funerary objects are present. Based on physical analysis, the human remains are determined to be Native American.
