An Outlaw's Grave: Exhuming Ned Kelly
Scientists in Australia believe they have found the grave of 19th Century outlaw and national icon Ned Kelly.
His remains are thought to be among those of executed prisoners found on the site of an abandoned prison in the southern city of Melbourne.
Kelly was a bank robber who was hanged in 1880 for murdering three policemen.
After evading arrest for several years, he used home-made armour in a final shoot-out with police; his exploits have been the subject of several films.
The scene of his last stand has also been designated a national heritage site.
Archaeologists have located three mass burial plots containing the remains of prisoners executed at the Melbourne Gaol and reburied at Pentridge in 1929. Five sets of bones have been exhumed and sent for forensic analysis.
Jeremy Smith, senior archaeologist with Heritage Victoria, said it would be difficult to establish whether any of the bones of the approximately 32 prisoners discovered were Kelly's.
Kelly, who was hanged in November 1880, was a celebrity even in 1929 when the bodies were dug up and moved, Mr Smith said, and some souveniring took place.
