1,000year-old human remains found on new Marine Corps base under construction on Guam | Marine Corps Times

Four burial sites were found during the construction of Camp Blaz, a new Marine Corps base under construction in Dededo. They are said to be 1,000 years old and belong to members of Guam’s indigenous Chamorro people, Pacific Daily News reported. The four burial plots were reburied after the discovery and the Historic Preservation Office is conducting assessments to ensure that there will be no destruction of burials or artifacts by military construction, archaeologist John Mark Joseph said.
