“He found the bones in the Stein fortress, which is located on the outskirts of Královec, the new owner during the inspection and handed over the whole matter to the relevant authorities,” writes the Ria News portal. Královec was formerly part of Prussia, now Russian territory.
A preliminary investigation has so far shown that the bags were put in place in 2013 by a company that carried out archaeological research in the area before construction work. These are probably human bones that come from a similar World War I.
According to Russian media, Stein Fortress was one of 12 separate fortifications built in the second half of the 19th century. After the war there was a barracks, later the fortress was used to store vegetables.
In 2007, the fortifications gained the status of cultural heritage of regional significance and was declared a monument.
