    Near an excavation site I found a bone cut to just over an inch long and has clean hacksaw marks. Animals in the area are deer, moose, wolfs, coyotes.
    It doesn't look round enough to be a human bone, maybe a large rib bone, but why would you cut an inch off a rib bone?

    Possible ancient burial ground?

    Doesn't look human to me. But I am no expert.
