of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia in 1921. In 1936, the human remains 
were loaned to the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and 
Anthropology. In 1997, the remains were formally gifted to the 
University of Pennsylvania. The human remains consist of three cranial 
fragments (temporal, parietal, and occipital bones) of one adult male. 
No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects 
are present.
    Museum and collector documentation indicate that the human remains 
have been dated to the early Historic Period. Consultation, published
