5000-year-old skeletons discovered in Burnt City (Iran)





The discoveries were made at the cemetery of the city during the 12th season of excavation that began in late December 2008.

The team led by Iranian archaeologist Mansur Sajjadi completed this season’s studies last week.

Twelve of the skeletons belong to children and a skeleton of a newborn is among the discoveries, anthropologist of the team Farzad Foruzanfar told the Persian service of CHN on Sunday.
