DHA PhotoA villager in the southeastern province of Batman’s Kozluk village, Mahfuz Nazar, has found 50 pieces of ancient artifacts in the ruins of a barn, which he set on fire in order to build a larger barn. The artifacts were found in a stone chest and include a wristband, coins, a silver bronze and glass ring and an earring.
The artifacts are estimated to date back to the Roman period. Nazar delivered the artifacts to the Batman Museum Directorate in order to keep them away from treasure hunters. Now the museum will assess the value of the ancient pieces.
Batman Museum Director Tenzile Uysal said that they were providing great convenience for citizens who accidentally found significant ancient artworks in the Batman provincial border.
