Excavators found human skeletons during work in Istiaia, North Evia.
Facing macabre findings clearing crews came to North Evia and specifically to Really when they found human skeletons under the cement during works.
The human remains were found during excavations in the streets of Istiaia for the implementation of infrastructure improvement projects, namely the installation of urban sewage networks.
In fact, according to eviathema, bones were found in two consecutive phases, a fact that immediately mobilized the authorities.
Two skeletons next to each other
As the machine operators were digging next to the Holy Church of the Annunciation of Theotokos Istiaia, they found a complete and intact skeleton buried at the site. Afterwards, another human skeleton was found in the same place, a little further from the first one.
Inquiries are underway to determine how the two intact skeletons came to be buried at this location. The fact that they are intact under the cement of the city certainly dispels the possibility that they belong to a recent burial and are estimated to belong to earlier times.
It is currently unclear whether these skeletons are an archaeological find or the remains of those who died in a late historical period – such as from the time of World War II or even later.
