Two English teens were spending their hot summer this past July in the Coln river, in Gloucestershire. There were enjoying the clearness of the water and its coolness when they saw something interesting. Peering closer, the two teens noticed what seemed round and smooth in the water. And it looked like human remains. The police were brought in and forensic scientists took the bone samples. Running various tests, such as carbon dating to establish an age of the remains, the Gloucestershire Police made a statement on their site of the forensic findings.

“Today it has been confirmed that the remains are that of a woman from Sub-Saharan Africa and are dated between 896AD and 1025AD. That is a very interesting find, as it is estimated that the ancient woman had traveled north of her home by about 3000 miles, according to the Huffington Post. The remains will most likely be donated to a museum or a university.

One of the boys who found the bones commented that he was very worried that someone was murdered and had gotten dumped in the waters. However when the police called and mentioned that the bones were more than 700 years old, “I wasn’t really worried,” he commented.
