Firm to monitor Logan work site where bones found

Charleston, West Virginia (AP) February 2011

The state has hired an archaeological consulting firm to monitor a Logan construction site where Native American remains were found.

Department of Administration spokeswoman Diane Holley-Brown tells The Charleston Gazette that GAI Consultants will monitor the removal of fill and examine the soil before excavation in an area that hasn’t been disturbed.

A new state office building is being constructed at the site. Workers found bones later identified as Native American on Jan. 31.

Holley-Brown says GAI will recover any artifacts found at the site and document any cultural features.
