The police transferred an investigation into human remains on Sunday to an archaeological organization, because the bone remains turned out to be at least a hundred years old. The Netherlands Forensic Institute (NFI) confirms this to NU.nl. The bones may go back to the Middle Ages.

The bone remains were found in a residential area in Ferwert, Frisia, during work on a driveway. Officers called in the NFI to study the remains, but the bones soon turned out to be too old for a police investigation.

An NFI archaeologist determined that these are bone remains that are at least a century old. The remains are probably even older and come from the Middle Ages, says spokesperson Suzan Dermihan of the NFI in conversation with NU.nl.

The archaeologist thinks this because graves from that era have been found in the vicinity of Ferwert before, says Dermihan. The stratification of the soil also plays a role. Remains of a coffin have also been found, which indicates that it is a regular grave.

The remains have now been transferred to an archaeological organization by the NFI and the police. Dermihan could not say how often the police find human remains that turn out to be a hundred years or older. She said it would happen a few times a year.
