Old skull several centuries old recovered in River Dyle in Leuven
Archaeologists are making no bones about this recent discovery.

An old skull which dates back several centuries was recovered yesterday afternoon (Thursday) in the River Dyle in Leuven. This was indicated by the local Leuven police.

A passer-by spotted the skull at a point on the river where water levels are low. He alerted the emergency services. Police and firemen arrived on site and the Public Prosecutor’s Office dispatched a forensic pathologist just in case it was necessary.

Once the head was out of the water, it was quickly crystal clear that the skull did not belong to a missing person but amounted to an archeological discovery.

The fragment is now in the process of being analysed to determine its origins.
