To date, archaeologists have unearthed three of the mummies in a complex structure consisting of seven houses built 1 thousand BC. These houses are not only houses but also places where worship rituals take place.
When the structure was built, two of the later mummies, along with the corpse of a sheep, possibly as a punishment, were buried in the house farthest north.
At the same time, the body of a 13-year-old girl, who had not been mummified, was also buried on the floor. Underneath the foundations of three unearthed southern houses, the mummies of three children were also found buried 1 thousand years BC.
Archeology journalist Daivid Key said: “Future archeological studies will have the opportunity to answer these questions.”
