Three sets of human remains were found at the Alamo during an archeological exploration stemming from a major renovation at the Texas shrine, state officials said Friday.
“The remains encountered appear to be indicative of a teenage or young adult, infant, and large adult,” the Texas General Land Office said in a release.
The article goes on to state the following:
The bodies were discovered during an exploration of the Monks Burial Room and Nave, which is the central section of the Alamo Church.
The remains appeared to be intentionally buried there, according to Karina Erickson, a Land Office spokesman said, but it is not known if they were formally buried.
From the Caller-Times:
“The remains encountered appear to be indicative of a teenage or young adult, infant, and large adult,” a news release from the agency said. “Upon discovery of the remains, the long-established human remains protocol was activated, the on-site tribal monitor was notified, and excavation of the particular site was halted.”
None of the remains have been moved.
The Land Office noted that other remains have been found at the historic site. During the summer, “human bone fragments were found by excavators inside the Alamo,” the Caller-Times reports. In 1995, “human remains were found in the main portion of the church, along the south transept and inside the Monks Burial room in 1989.”
