Human Skeletons in a Garden! (T)

Human Skeletons of the 4th or 5th c. A.D. in a garden

According to the Archaeologist mr. Koutsomanis it is the grave of a woman of the Roman or Byzantine Period.

Two human skeletons and grave offerings were discovered by an inhabitant of Tychero of the Evros Prefecture, while digging in his garden.

According to the Archaeologist of the 19th Ephorate of Prehistoric and Classical Antiquities of Komotene, Matthaios Koutsomanis, it is the grave of a woman dated to the 4th or 5th century A.D.

He is led to this conclusion as in the grave offerings were found including two glass and two bronze bracelets. The jewellery will be cleaned and examined in the Komotene Museum where they were transferred so that archaeologists can determine their exact date and origin. As mr. Koutsomanis explained the service was called in by the police station of Tychero and arrived on the scene when the bones had already been transported the the coroners office of Thrace to be further examined; the result was that the archaeologists could not arrive at well founded conclusions.
