The most famous street in York has reopened following four weeks of disruption during the installation of the sliding bollards.
Bones were discovered by the workers and were sent to York Archaeological Trust for analysis.
They believe they were part of the St Crux Church burial ground, which is next to the site.
Shambles was completely closed to vehicles and pedestrians during a large part of the works, causing disruption for businesses based on the medieval street.
Work to install bollards on other key routes in the city continue, with Colliergate set to close from Monday 9 October.
The junction between Pavement and Parliament Street is scheduled for installation to commence next week.
