Skulls and skeletal remains recovered from Matale mass grave
[ Monday, 21 January 2013, 03:50.43 PM GMT +05:30 ]
A total of 79 human skulls and 78 skeletal remains have been unearthed so far from excavations carried out at the mass grave near the Matale Hospital.

Skulls and partial skeletons were discovered in November last year by workers building a facility at a hospital in Matale.

Excavations were carried out under a court order and are still being conducted under the supervision of three judicial medical officers.

The skeletal remains unearthed so far have been submitted for carbon dating procedures.

The Postgraduate Institute of Archaeology had conducted tests regarding the remains and submitted a short report, which verifies that the remains recovered from site have no archaeological significance and were buried in the recent past.

The skulls and skeletal remains have given birth to various speculations, while the full report of the excavation being carried out is scheduled to be handed over to the Matale Judicial Medical Officer in the future.
