Looks like the last fragments of human remains including teeth were found in 2015 prior to the new children's hospital being built.

There were human remains found earlier on in 1952, and reported to the Cops at the time.

Other human remains finds were between 1998 and 2009.

2009 saw a find of fragments of bone from at least two ppl.
