Klallam village in Washington called significant find

A 22-acre site that was once home to the Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe is being called one of the most significant finds in Washington.

Archaeologists working with the tribe and the state uncovered a village that could be at least 1,700 years old. They have located remnants of a longhouse, homes and other artifacts unique in Klallam culture.

The site was nearly lost due to a state construction project that is on hold pending excavation. The tribe has reburied the remains of more than 150 ancestors. Partial remains of 200 people have been recovered.
