While wandering about Malindi, Kenya. My wife and I stumbled upon this archaeological dig site behind some shop. It was being dug up and studied by some Chinese archaeologist/professor from a Hong Kong university.

These were human skeletal remains found about 10-20 feet under the ground and were consisting of a couple adults and a couple children said to be dated back to the 16th century and were of Muslim origin. Which makes sense as Malindi was originally a Muslim colony.

They allowed me to spend about a half hour taking pictures before we we're told we had to leave as this was an active dig site.
