Article taken from The Hamilton Daily Republican, August 3, 1894

Columbus, O.. Aug. 3 -Prof, Loveberr,. of the Ohio State university, who has been opening a mound in the southern part of the city, on the Scioto, came across the well-preserved skull of a female Thursday morning. The specimen was surrounded by flints and bones. The explorers found Wednesday an intrusive burial surrounded by deer antlers, celts, state ornaments, arrow heads, beads and carved bones. As the mound is in undoubted alliance with the burial tumuli of Ohio, it is exhumed relics and bones of the mound builders.
