TUCSON - Sonoita Border Patrol discovered different type of pot last week: agents found two pieces of ancient pottery while patrolling on foot in the Patagonia Mountains.
The agents found one intact ancient pot and a piece of another pot while patrolling in the rugged Patagonia Mountains last week, according to a news release form Customs and Border Protection. Agents notified U.S. Forest Service officials, who took the artifacts to a local facility for further study.
After initial inspection, the Forest Service believes the pot is genuine, and could date back to as much as 1,000 years.
