Incan bones found in Østfold
Archeologists in Sarpsborg have found one thousand year old skeletal
remains that appear to be Incan.
The skeletal remains were found during conservations work at St.
Nicolas church in Sarpsborg, a city 73 kilometers (45 miles) southeast
of Oslo, NRK (Norwegian Broadcasting) reports.
When archeologists were to move some rose bushes they made the
surprising discovery of the remains of two older men and a baby.
"When we were about to take hold under the rose bush the skeletal
remains slid out. It was quite surprising," Mona Beate Buckholm,
archeologist at the Borgarsyssel Museum, told NRK.
One of the skulls had characteristics that indicate he was an Inca,
the South American people centered in Peru.
"There is a bone in the neck that hasn't grown and this is an
inherited characteristic only found among Inca Indians in Peru. This
is sensational," Buckholm said.
The archeologists now plan to try and find out what the man was doing
in Østfold, and how he came there.
