A partial skull that was discovered last summer by two kayakers in Minnesota will be returned to Native American officials after investigations determined it was about 8,000 years old.

The kayakers found the skull in the drought-depleted Minnesota River about 110 miles (180 kilometers) west of Minneapolis, Renville County Sheriff Scott Hable said.

The article goes on to state the following:

Thinking it might be related to a missing person case or murder, Hable turned the skull over to a medical examiner and eventually to the FBI, where a forensic anthropologist used carbon dating to determine it was likely the skull of a young man who lived between 5500 and 6000 B.C., Hable said.

Hable initially made a Facebook post about the discovery of the skull but had his office remove it once he received backlash from several Native Americans, who said it was culturally offensive to post photos of ancestral remains.

The anthropologist discovered a depression on the skull and said was “perhaps suggestive of the cause of death.”

Hable stated the remains will be turned over to Upper Sioux Community tribal officials.
