Cave 7

Ninety-seven skeletons were taken from this cave. Many of the men showed evidences of having been killed, as spearpoints were found between the ribs and arrowpoints in the backbones. One case where the hip bones were pinned together wtih a huge obsidian spearpoint shows that no small amount of force was used to bury a point of that size into two inches of bone.
