Officials are in communication with Eastern Band.
The Parker Meadows recreation complex project hit a road bump last week. While grading a section of the property that is expected to eventually be the outfield of one of the ball fields, human remains were uncovered in what appeared to be a gravesite.
Macon County Recreation Director Seth Adams explained that what appeared to be teeth were found around some dark spots in an oval shape that was assumed to be a gravesite. Macon officials anticipated something similar happening and took precautions by hiring an archeologist to be on site during the grading portion of areas previously identified as possible locations for artifacts or remains.
