Human Bones!

Human Bones!

Aztalan State Park, just to the East of Lake Mills, has been studied for years. About 100 years ago excavated human bones were thought to be from cannibalism. Cannibalism! The eating of human flesh! Boiled heads!

Anthropologist/Archeologist Katie Rudolph, a recent UW-Milwaukee grad, says the bones are the result of warfare, not cannibalism or zombies. Will this make tours more or less interesting to Cub Scouts? Ms. Rudolph gave a presentation on her findings to the Friends of Aztalan Park on March 13th. She did a good job. Watch her presentation below.
