Archeologists in Bali say they have unearthed ancient human remains that date back to about 500 B.C. at a village in the island’s southeast.

Ayu Kusumawati, a researcher from the Denpasar Archeological Society, said on Sunday that two sarcophagi had been discovered by a bricklayer in a quarry near Keramas village in Gianyar.

She said the group opened one of the stone caskets on Sunday. It contained a human skeleton with all the bones intact. The second sarcophagus is set to be opened on Monday.
