Austrian archaeologists have unearthed the remains of two newborns while excavating a site near the Danube River city of Krems, reports Associated Press. The bodies - dating back more than 27,000 years - were found buried beneath mammoth bones suggesting the internment was part of a ritual.

The burial one of the oldest in the region is also significant in that the children were not simply disposed of after their deaths, said Christine Neugebauer-Maresch, the project's leader at the Austrian Academy of Sciences.
