At a burial site once used by people from the Harappan era, archaeologists in India are busying themselves with important work. Given that the team of researchers are excavating a cemetery, though, the fact that they discover dozens of different graves hardly comes as a surprise. But then the experts suddenly do find something that can be considered genuinely astonishing.
The archaeologists – who worked at the Harappan site from 2013 to 2016 – were from India’s Deccan College Post-Graduate and Research Institute, which is based in the city of Pune. And scientists from the Institute of Forensic Science at South Korea’s Seoul National University College of Medicine helped the Indian team to analyze the finds in more detail.
