A grisly find has been made on a Western Australian construction site.
Construction workers at the WA Museum construction site found skeletal remains which turned out to be human while excavating the site.
The discovery was made on James Street in Northbridge recently, leading to the site being shut down.
Investigations by homicide squad detectives are underway with inquiries trying to determine how the remains came to be there.
Over the course of history the museum served as a home for convicts sent to WA to work. It was built in 1856.
