Ancient tomb unearthed in Tuscany

Archaeologists investigating a potential building site near Volterra (Tuscany, Italy) discovered a tomb dating from pre-Etruscan times. Volterra Mayor Marco Buselli said "It is a remarkable discovery that opens new scenarios regarding pre-Etruscan Volterra".
     The tomb, consisting of a large jar which is an estimated one meter in height and more than 80 cm in diameter, was found during survey archaeological investigations for the building of a nursery school. The jar was found in good condition, in a ditch with a stone covering that one city official said "From the fragments it is reasonable to assume that it is as a pre-Etruscan burial".
   The tomb is now being studied at the Tuscany archaeological superintendency's conservation laboratory.
