Prague archaeologists have removed the nearly 1,000-year-old remains of what are thought to be Přemyslid princes from the St. Stephen's cloisters in Olomouc.
It is believed that among the interned skeletons were those of Ota I, the Prince of Olomouc from 1061 until his death, and his wife Euphemia, a daughter of King Béla I of Hungary.
Researchers discovered a number of coffins at the Olomouc site only last year, and comprehensive testing has yet to be carried out.
