He Was a Big Fellow…

Battling nomads earned you buckets of trouble around 2,500 B.C., reports an international archeology team. Scars too. But at least you earned yourself a fancy burial.

Two Bronze Age burials in a tomb from the ancient trade town of Terqa, a Mesopatamian archeological site in modern-day Syria.

“The tomb from Terqa consisted of two chambers with stone domes. The smaller chamber contained many luxury grave goods, including jars, plates and pieces of ancient jewellery. The artifacts were placed in an orderly manner, one upon another. Small animal bones and crushed ostrich eggshells indicate that this part was visited by people who left there some offerings. The other chamber was bigger and contained human skeletons,” says the study.
