Native remains uncovered during construction at Round Rock, Texas subdivision

KB Homes uncovered human bones, and stopped immediately as Round Rock, Texas police were called in.  Anthropologists from Texas State University worked until darkness.  KB Homes will bring in their own specialists on Saturday. Since developers own the land, they are responsible for searching for other remains.

Under state law, even a single body constitutes a cemetery and a qualified anthropologist must determine if there are the remains of others.

So far, three remains have been found in an area that has long been popular with people searching for Indian arrowheads.

Forest Ridge is a new 225 home subdivision located just south of Highway 79 in Round Rock.
