Human remains uncovered on a building site near Doncaster have been dated back more than 500 years.
Police were called to the site on Tickhill Road in Bawtry after builders found a skull and skeletal remains buried about two feet underground.
A police surgeon confirmed the bones were those of a small adult or child.
South Yorkshire Police said they were no longer treating the site as a crime scene after tests showed the bones were more than 500 years old.
Archaeologists are now excavating part of the site to determine its history.
