The Nation

November 06, 1986

An Indian village dating back as much as 6,000 years and containing rare tools made of animal bone has been discovered close to the site where the Pilgrims first landed, archeologists said. The 5.5-acre site just outside downtown Plymouth, Mass., was found to contain arrowheads, pottery shards, crushed sea shells, animal bone fragments, stone and bone tools, charcoal and burned rock. The site is on a 22-acre parcel where three developers planned to build homes. An archeological survey was conducted when local Indians indicated the site may contain an ancient burial ground.
