The land of Middleborough has been occupied for thousands of years. Only relatively recently have human remains been buried in cemeteries. Laws are in place that detail the process for those occasions when human remains are discovered. The bottom line: Do not disturb the remains, and call both the State and Local Police. The Massachusetts Historical Commission give more information here.
