The “archaic living area” reportedly uncovered during the excavation reportedly features a storage section where “ancient ceramics, pots and jugs” were found.
Excavations conducted at an archaeological site located in Turkey’s Van Province traces of “ancient life” that date back some 5,000 years ago, Hurriyet Daily News reports.
According to the media outlet, a 15-person excavation team which counts anthropologists, archaeologists and art historians among its members has found an Early Bronze Age “archaic living space” during surface research at Iremir Mound.
The uncovered area reportedly includes what is believed to be a storage section where “ancient ceramics, pots and jugs” were found.
The Iremir Mound’s significance also stems from the fact that it “displays the ancient civilizations as a whole”, the newspaper adds citing Uslu.
