History and Description of the Remains

    On February 12, 1976, human remains representing, at minimum, one 
individual were removed from a site identified as 2-12-76A, in Fresno, 
Kings, or Madera County, CA, by Fresno City College instructor Don 
Wren. The human remains are fragmentary and represent an adult of 
indeterminate sex. No known individuals were identified. The one 
associated funerary object is one lot of non-human bone.
    Between the early 1960s and 2000, human remains representing, at 
minimum, one individual were removed from an unidentified site in 
Fresno, Kings, or Madera County, CA, by Fresno City College instructor

of indeterminate age and sex. No known individual was identified. No 
associated funerary objects are present.
    The archeological collections under the control of the State Center 
Community College District and housed in the Archeological Repository 
at Fresno City College derive from archeological fieldwork done by Wren 
from the early 1960s through 2000. Over the course of his archeological 
career, Wren documented over 1,500 archeological sites in Fresno, 
Madera, Tulare, Mariposa, and Kings Counties. All of the human remains 
that Wren collected from sites with known provenience were collected 
from Fresno, Kings, and Madera Counties. In January 2017, during an 
examination of the faunal collections for the presence of human 
remains, the human remains described in this inventory were discovered.
