INDIANS KNEW A GOOD THING: THE HAMPTONS!

Recently archaeologists surveying for a suburban housing development near Southampton on Long Island (NY) discovered an ancient American Indian skull. It dates from 1000 to 3000 years according to the Suffolk County medical examiner's office.

The skull was given to the Shinnecock Indian Nation in nearby Southampton for reburial, the Southampton police reported. The town requires such a study for American Indian artifacts before development can begin because of the centuries-old history of the Shinnecock tribe who have lived on the shores of Eastern Long Island for centuries. The glamorous Hamptons are only a couple of hours drive from New York City.
