A diver accidentally discovers a burial site for 7,000-year-old Native Americans in Florida
A diver accidentally discovered an "unprecedented" discovery after finding a burial site for a 7,000-year-old Native American population off the coast of Florida, the Independent newspaper reported.

The diver, who is looking for fossils, said he was looking for shark teeth when he found old jaw bones while swimming in the Gulf of Mexico in 2016.

The newspaper added that scientists were alerted to the site when the diver, who did not name the Office of Archaeological Research, reported the possibility of human remains.

Archaeologists believe that this site was used by indigenous people to bury their family members.

The rising sea in the Gulf of Mexico eventually engulfed the pond, and the fossils are believed to be indigenous ancestors in America. These sites have great cultural and religious significance at present.
