Additional Details:
This prehistoric burial pit is definitely linked with the Indians of Coronado's time. Skeleton remains of 146 Indians are uncovered and left exactly as they were placed there many centuries ago, layer upon layer, in flexed positions with knees drawn up and hands resting close to their faces. Some of the skeletons measure well over six feet in height, others are of small children. The Pit is located just off U.S. Highway 40, four miles east of Salina
