FARMERS have sold hundreds of gold artefacts stolen from skeletal corpses unearthed at a newly-found ancient burial complex in Indonesia, media reported today.
Skeletons wearing chains of gold rings around their necks, heads, hands and feet were found in the tombs in a rice field at Kendal Jaya village, about 60km east of Jakarta, the Seputar Indonesia daily said.

They were buried with other accessories made of precious stones or gold as well as axes and other pottery articles.

Between 15 and 25 people are estimated to have been buried at the site at a depth of only about 1.5m.
