Pune: Animal skeleton debris dating back to the Peshwa era was discovered on Wednesday by workers digging at the Pune Metro site near Mandai.

The bodies are of elephants and some bovine animals, but these are not ancient and are 200-300 years old, experts say, according to Indian Express reports.

Workers digging at the Mahatma Phule Mandai Metro site encountered some bones, later they carefully removed them, and warned experts at the Deccan College Graduate Institute.

Four members of the archeology department visited the site on Thursday, and preliminary research revealed that the bones were of mammals and could have been buried 200 to 300 years ago.

“The bones were found at a depth of about 10 feet. One bone was identified as the lower limb of an elephant,” said Sachin Joshi, archaic chemist at Deccan College, who led the testing team.

“Back in those days, areas around Mandai were not thickly populated and, hence, could have been used for burials,” said Joshi, adding that the area around the site must be scientifically excavated and bone samples studied in detail.
