Budapest, January 5 (MTI) – Tombs believed to be 7,000 years old have been excavated by archeologists near the arboretum of the central Hungarian town of Szarvas, daily Magyar Idok reported on Tuesday citing local news website beol.hu.
Parts of a 7,500 year-old building, a deep and wide pit and six tombs from the time of the Pannonian Avars have also been dug up, archeologist Andras Gulyas said. Golden coins have been recovered from two of the tombs, where females were buried, along with a small medal from one of the tombs. Horse harnesses have also been buried next to the dead, he added.
The majority of the archeological findings originate from the late modern period, including parts of two buildings, one destroyed by fire, and pieces of pottery.
The findings will go on display at the Tessedik Samuel Museum of Szarvas in the near future.
