Officials Shocked By What They Discover In 4,800-Year-Old Female Skeleton's Hands

The construction of an underground sewer line in Taiwan would turn up a gruesome find, as workers would uncover skeletal remains. According to the Taipei Times, officials have sent the remains to the US to determine the age of the remains using advanced techniques.

Workers would first be startled to uncover a skull at the site. Additional digging would reveal that it was actually a complete skeleton that appeared to be lying on its back, holding a baby. Even more curiously, six broken pottery shards and a canine tooth were discovered in the same vicinity.

Police and officials investigated the remains, but were unable to determine the sex since the remains had apparently been buried for quite some time. They speculated that it could be the skeleton of a young adult, and elderly area residents have indicated that the site was once home to a village of Aborigines.

Unable to make heads or tails of their find, the remains have been sent to a lab in Florida, where carbon dating techniques will be employed to extract more information.
