Two skeletons — one presumably of a 13-year-old girl and another of a man in late 30s — were discovered in Eskisehir’s oldest town, Kulluoba.

Head of the excavations Murat Turkteki said thorough analyses will be conducted on the newly discovered human remains.
Excavations in Early Bronze Age settlement Kulluoba located in Eskisehir’s historic Seyitgazi district have been carried out since 1996.



The settlement consists of adjacent houses and storage areas lined around courtyards of various sizes. A total of 15 graves, including stone cist and pottery graves, were also found.
