The human remains were found under a layer of mud and sand at a depth of nine meters during an underwater examination of the remains of the old Dubingiai bridge, said Elena Pranckenaite.
She said the underwater find, which was not a burial, was unique and the first of its kind in Lithuania.
Personal belongings found nearby, including a sword, well-preserved leather boots and two knives, suggest that the remains belonged to a medieval soldier.
