Archaeologists find more bones along downtown rail route

Archaeologists for the city’s rail transit project unearthed another set of human remains Sunday as they worked on one of two remaining trenches in the proposed downtown corridor.

The bones were discovered near the federal building on Pohu­kaina Street close to where other remains were earlier found.

Work on the trench halted as archaeologists reported the finding to the State Historic Preservation Division.

Hinaleimoana Wong-Kalu of the Oahu Island Burial Council said initial indications were that the remains were a child’s, likely from pre-Western contact times.

Lots of work going on for this project. I worked with a geologist last year who spent several months working on it.
