Archaeologists uncover Hidatsa village at North Dakota worksite
Archaeologists in North Dakota are excavating a Hidatsa village that dates back 300 to 500 years.

So far, workers have uncovered human remains, bison skulls and other items at the site of a Burleigh County construction project. The county plans to repatriate the ancestors to the Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara Nation.

The excavation has delayed completion of the project.
