SCOTLAND, Ind. (AP) — An Indiana property owner may wind up in court to resolve a dispute over a centuries-old rock that was unearthed in Greene County as part of the state's work to expand Interstate 69.
Georgia Flinn tells The Herald-Times a stone that ancient Native Americans likely used to crack nutshells was unearthed on her property near Scotland in November 2006. Such stones are believed to date from the Midwest's early archaic period that lasted from 8000 to 1000 B.C.
The Indiana Department of Transportation notified Flinn last year that it had erroneously returned the so-called nutting stone to her neighbors. INDOT wrote the neighbors asking them to return the stone, but Flinn says she still doesn't have it.
Flinn says she may go to court to retrieve the stone.
