FOUNTAIN, Colo. (AP) – A skull has been discovered at a construction site in El Paso County.

The Colorado state archaeologist is on the scene Thursday to investigate.

The remains were discovered Wednesday at a subdivision construction site in Fountain.

The Fountain police department says the skull was discovered when workers were installing a drainage pipe. The county coroner has given authorities a rough estimate that the remains are 50 to 75 years old, but that estimate hasn’t been confirmed.
