Archaeologists working along the Patuxent River in Anne Arundel County, Md., have found hundreds of Native American artifacts over the past three years, and now they say what they have discovered this year indicates the site was used for ritualistic burials. "It looks like this was ritual central for 850 years or more," county archaeologist Al Luckenbach said. "This casts all the things we discovered in the first three years in a completely different light."
