Archaeologists excavating a 15th century ship in Newport, Wales have unearthed human remains. Curioser and curioser. The saga of the Newport medeival ship continues to spark interest around the world. On December 12, 2002, excavators discovered two ancient leg bones at the site on the River Usk. "It's possible that these bones are the result of some kind of accident," said Adam Yates of the Archaeological Trust. The bones belong to a grown man and were found underneath the ship. The bones have been removed for carbon dating.
