043 – Huge depositions of cremated remains

The excavation of pit 40 is going with a good rhythm. We are detecting a complex stratigraphy, with several moments of deposition of cremated remains and later partial re-excavation of previous deposits. But we are still amazed with the quantity of burned human bones.

In terms of archeological materials, today we recorded some of the common from this context: beads, arrow heads and ivory.

But the anatomical connections started to be defined. Tomorrow there will be some nice pictures (I suppose).
