A state archaeologist says a human skull found in an attic probably belonged to an American Indian woman in her twenties.

The skull with hair and flesh still attached was found by a roofing crew working on a house during June.

Ron Rood with the Division of State History examined the skull. He says the shape of the skull and grit on the teeth are consistent with the diet of American Indians. He speculates that the skull had once been buried.

Rood says a laboratory in Florida is trying to determine when the woman died.
