Human bones found at Spy Hill site

Publication YearIssue Date 

An investigation is taking place after the discovery of human remains during construction at the University of Calgary's Spy Hill campus. The find was made at the site of the new high density library, where books will be held as the McKimmie Library is freed for work space.

Dr. Mary-Ann Katzenberg of the university's archaeology department has been called in to help answer some questions regarding the bones. Because of the limited amount of information with the site, how long the body has been there and how it ended up there are unknown.

The Calgary Police Service has not released any information regarding the case, but will investigate further if the medical examiner's office believes foul play was involved.

Katzenberg, who was researching the bones Tuesday, was not at liberty to comment on her findings.
