    Perhaps (probably) a burial that occurred in modern times, but it will be interesting to see what is found with the investigation...

      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.
