History and Description of the Remains Between 1970 and 1972, and again in 1978, human remains representing, at minimum, 35 individuals were removed from the Gibraltar Site (20WN10) in Wayne County, MI. Salvage excavations were undertaken at the site by S. Demeter and C. Martinez between 1970 and 1972, and a Wayne State University Field School was conducted at the site in 1971 and 1978.

The majority of the individuals are represented only by fragmentary and incomplete remains. No known individuals were identified. The 21 associated funerary objects are seven wood fragments, two iron fragments, two silver brooches, two ribbon brooches, two white seed beads, two copper springs, two square nails, one belt buckle, and one silver coin. While the Gibraltar Site was occupied as early as the Woodland period, the human remains and associated funerary objects listed in this notice all derive from a historic period Native American cemetery that was once located near the intersection of West Jefferson and Gibraltar Roads, in Gibraltar, Michigan. In 1968, this burial ground was bulldozed for development of the Kingsbridge Apartment Complex. The Wayne State University archeologists who excavated the Gibraltar Site did not compile written reports, but their historical research led them to believe that it was Wyandot. More recent archeological work in the region has also documented the Gibraltar Site and possibly additional nearby sites as Wyandot (see Demeter, C.S. ‘‘Phase I Archaeological Survey and Literature Search of the Proposed Woodland Meadows Van Buren Expansion Wetland Mitigation Site, Parcel III D. Gibraltar, Wayne County, Michigan’’). Also, historical records document Wyandot settlements near Gibraltar during the early 18th century, as well as the establishment of the village of Brownstown in present day Gibraltar, in 1742.
