Download as PDF khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 217 / Friday, November 8, 2019 / Notices to accession 05–0289). The human remains belong to one male adolescent, one female adolescent, two female young adults, one male young adult, and one male adult. All of the human remains are characterized by affixed soil and degrees of soil staining. Some elements show differential bleaching from exposure to sunlight, which suggests that they may have been originally recovered from a disturbed or eroded burial context. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. Based on their physical condition, the human remains were most likely interred below the ground surface over 100 years ago. Whether the six individuals were interred within the same burial feature is unclear. The human remains are most likely Native American based on their morphological features and tooth wear pattern. In 2010, human remains representing, at minimum, three individuals were removed from site 39ML18 in Marshall County, SD, by archeologists from the Archaeological Research Center during the investigation of a burial disturbance. All skeletal elements and associated funerary objects were recovered out of context, in previously disturbed fill that had been imported by the landowner from a former gravel pit as part of a home remodeling project. According to the landowner, human skeletal remains were rumored to have been discovered during gravel pit operations at the same location by county personnel in the 1940s and 1950s. The human remains and associated funerary objects recovered from the site were brought to the Archaeological Research Center for documentation at the completion of the field investigation (accession 10–0137). A physical anthropological assessment determined that the fragmentary skeletal elements are consistent with Native American archeological remains, and represent two adult males and one subadult of indeterminate sex, 2.5 to 3.5 years old. No known individuals were identified. The four associated funerary objects are one soil sample, one chert shatter, one possible stone bead, and one stone sample. Site 39ML18 was initially documented in the late 1800s as one of several local burial mound sites overlooking Kettle Lake near Fort Sisseton. Based on morphological features and the probable original burial context, the human remains may date to the Northeast Plains Woodland Period (400 B.C. to A.D. 1250).
