Ancient skulls to be given to M’Chigeeng First Nation
In the near future, the M’Chigeeng First Nation will receive two ancient skulls to be re-buried. The skulls are close to the same age at about 800 years old and were found in the Mindemoya area a short time apart. An expert at Laurentian University says the area where the skulls were found showed no evidence of an ancient burial site. Anthropologist Doctor Scott Fairgrieve believes something like a dog dug up the remains resulting in their relocation to where they were found. Fairgrieve says once all the tests are completed, the skulls will be sent to M’Chigeeng for re-burial. Fairgrieve says the cause of death for both skulls is unknown.
