Skeletal remains found under a San Mateo home Friday, June 8, have been determined to have belonged to a Native American and the site could likely have been a burial ground at one time, said San Mateo County Coroner Robert  Foucrault. 

The skeleton have been turned over to the Native American Heritage Society and a report will be completed within a few weeks, he said, adding that several locations throughout the county have been discovered to be Native American burial sites.

Construction crews discovered the bones while digging a trench under a home on the 900 block of 10th Avenue.
