A University of Alabama archaeologist has released a report stating his case that a stone mound in Oxford was created by natural forces and not by Native Americans centuries ago as was indicated in a report he signed last year.

Robert Clouse, director of the Office of Archaeological Research at the University of Alabama and director of the University of Alabama Museums, mailed the second report the Anniston Star.

The stone mound behind the Oxford Exchange was at the center of a dispute last year, which ended with the city of Oxford backing away from plans to level the mound and use dirt beneath it for fill at a nearby construction site.
