Skeletons in the archives

A COURT employee looking for a file came across a box of bones last Tuesday (March 10) in the archives of Sevilla’s number 13 court.

Court sources told Europa Press that the bones had been stored in the archives since they were discovered during building works near the cathedral in 2007 and sent for analysis.

A laboratory report determined that the bones were more than 50 years old and of human origin, and they were sent back to the court where the case (and the box of bones) was shelved and forgotten.

Now the box, containing a number of human bones, has been handed over to the cemetery for correct burial at last.
