PORT ANGELES -- The Lower Elwha Klallam tribe plans to rebury a skull found near the mouth of the Elwha River, and it won't be the first such reburial.
Tribal Chairwoman Frances Charles said the skull was found by tribal members Monday afternoon on a beach.
Tribal archaeologist Bill White told the Peninsula Daily News that the skull was with four partial skeletons that were removed in 1920 by University of Washington archeologists working at the river's mouth. In 1980, the remains were repatriated from the university's Burke Museum of Natural History and buried near where they were originally found.
The skull was apparently unearthed recently through erosion.
