Bronze Age settlement discovered in Hungary

Archaeologists of Debrecen's Deri Museum have discovered 4,000-year-old remains of a settlement during earthworks connected to a local sewage treatment project, leader of the excavations Krisztian Szilagyi said. A team of 35-40 archaeologists are working in an area of two hectares, and have now identified the traces of three phases of the settlement, the earliest one in the early Bronze Age between 2700-2500 BCE, Szilagyi said. The settlement is believed to have been the largest of its kind in eastern Hungary, the archaeologist added. Szilagyi said that his team had found many workaday objects, as well as two skeletons -- unique finds from an age when people always used to cremate their dead. The excavations are scheduled to be completed by August 20.
