Renovations to a golf course on a North Carolina resort island have uncovered buried human bones that an anthropologist says could be more than a century old.
The StarNews of Wilmington reported Friday that state archaeologists plan to excavate the area of Bald Head Island to determine if it's a forgotten burial ground.
Workers last weekend found a full skeleton that appeared to be buried with crossed arms, then found a second skeleton Monday.
Archaeologist Richard Lawrence says there isn't much information about people who lived on what is now a resort where golf carts are the only motorized transportation.
Public Safety Chief Chip Munna says the island had been known for pirate activity and was a Civil War camp.
