Indian Artifacts Found at Factory Site

Indian Artifacts Found at Factory Site

According to the Associated Press, an interesting discovery was made recently at the future site of SunCoke Energy Inc.'s new plant. Several hundred Native American artifacts were found at the site and are thought to be thousands of years old.

SunCoke Energy, which is building the plant to help supply coke for AK Steel's Middletown Works, found a few artifacts and later hired an archaeological firm to excavate two areas. Among the findings were fragments from arrowheads, spearheads, and evidence of stone tool-making.

Experts say the artifacts probably date back to between 8000 B.C. and 1200 A.D. The items will most likely be given to the Cincinnati Museum Center.
