Warsaw (Poland), September 3 (ANI): The remains of a 30-year-old woman, which date back to 6,500 years, have been found at an archeological excavation in Pinczow, in the Swietokrzyska region, in southern Poland.
According to the director of the dig, Przemyslaw Duleba, from the Institute of Archeology at the University of Warsaw, this is the oldest discovery every to be found in this region.
The skeleton of the young woman is perfectly preserved and laid on her left side in an embryonic position, he said.
Duleba said that this skeleton provides evidence as to the funereal rites of the people that lived on this land in that era.
These people were the first agrarians to settle in this area, and they originally are from the Danube River region of Europe.
This archeological dig has been open for eight years and archaeologists have found bone fragments, metal bits, and ceramic pieces among other things.
Last month, another dig in the region turned up dinosaur fossils that have proved to be a predecessor to the Tyrannosaurus Rex. (ANI)
