History and Description of the Remains

    In December 2018, human remains representing, at minimum, one 
individual were removed from site 9JK317 in Jackson County, GA. A 
series of 56 rock piles were documented during investigations from 2016 
to 2018 conducted by Stratum Unlimited on private property located 
within the River Glen subdivision. During excavations, human remains 
were encountered at the base of Rock Pile 01. Work was halted, and 
Stratum Unlimited contacted the Georgia Department of Natural 
Resources, Historic Preservation Division. After consultation, no 
further work was conducted at 9JK317. In January 2019, the human 
remains and associated funerary objects were transferred to the Georgia 
Department of Natural Resources, Historic Preservation Division. The 
human remains consist of 61 small long bone fragments. No age or sex of 
individual could be identified. No known individuals were identified. 
The 33 associated funerary objects are three lithic bifaces, seven 
lithic debitage, 21 lithic flakes, one Wolfskin/Late Lamar ceramic 
sherd, and one sample of residual soil.
    The presence of one Wolfskin/Late Lamar ceramic sherd and the

with The Muscogee (Creek) Nation.

Preservation Division have determined that:
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described
