Ancient tombs from the Roman era have been unearthed at a jobsite in the western province of Kütahya’s Gaybiefendi neighborhood, prompting a halt to construction.

Three tombs have been found, according to Kütahya Museum Director Metin Türktüzün. “Preliminary examinations show that the tombs date back 2,000 years ago. Most probably, this region is an ancient necropolis. There are skeletons of four or five humans in each tomb. Other tombs may be found in the area,” he said.

The project director of the construction, Orhan Erdoğan, said they would restart construction works in light of the information to be provided by archaeologists after examinations in the field.
