Workers preparing the site for Tulsa's new downtown arena made a startling discovery this week.

A construction crew uncovered a set of human bones. Authorities say it's no surprise the bones were found since authorities knew a cemetery dating to the 1800s had existed on the site.

Attempts were made to move all the remains from the cemetery in the 1920s, but bones have been unearthed several times over the decades during construction in the area.
