Three Roman skeletons were discovered during subway construction

This post is also available in: Polish (polski)

During the construction of the metro in Rome, workers came across skeletons that belonged to the Romans. Due to the fact that human remains were found in the place where the “Pyramid” station will be located, the artifacts were referred to as “Pyramid Mummies”.

The discovery occurred on September 30 this year. Scientists have not specified the date of the find at this time. It is certain, however, that the skeletons belonged to a man, woman and child – hence the suggestion that it could have been a family.

Researchers hope that further research will tell more about the dead.
