More from the Bronze Age
This is very kewl! Italian archaeologists say they have unearthed a Bronze Age-era skeleton in an ancient necropolis in the heart of Rome. The well-preserved skeleton appears to be that of a woman aged about 30, said archaeologist Anna De Santis, who took part in the excavations under the Caesar's Forum, part of the sprawling complex of the Imperial Forums in central Rome. The skeleton dates to the 10th century B.C., long before the founding of Rome, thought to be in 753 B.C.
