A sea is a place full of mystery – humankind has mapped out more outer space than we have of our own seabed.

So, it’s not really any big surprise that, from time to time, bizarre things tend to wash up on our beaches and coastlines.

From World War II relics to Ice Age and Prehistoric remains, here are 20 of the strangest things that have ever washed up on our shores.

Bandages and hospital-style plastic shoe covers were reportedly found with the haul, and police have taken fingerprints from one of the hands, according to local media.

Theories from local media as to why the hands were severed range from them being the result of punishment for theft, medical amputations, or the improperly discarded remains of cadavers dissected by medical students.

The Amur River island where the bag was found is a popular fishing spot for people living in nearby Khabarovsk, a city of half a million people close to Russia’s southeastern border with China.
