3000-year-old settlement found in Switzerland
A settlement believed to be nearly 3000 years old has been discovered near Roman tombs in northern Switzerland, archeologists said. The hamlet near Frick, in Argau district, dated from about 900 BCE, the district's archeological department said. Excavations revealed stone foundations for the Celtic tribespeople's wooden dwellings, ceramics, animal bones and charred grain. Archeologists also found Roman tombs nearby dating from about 100 AD which contained glass containers, bronze ornaments, ceramics and other objects.
