Excavations carried out as part of a flood protection project in the center of Limassol, in the area of Tzamouda, brought to light an ancient tomb, without causing any particular problem in the progress of the work.

In a press release, on Wednesday, the Limassol-Amathous Sewerage Board said that the tomb dates back to the Late Bronze Age (1600-1050 BC) and so far, two human skeletons and various offerings (vessels) have been found inside it.

Εxcavations to reveal the findings are expected, according to information from the Department of Antiquities, to last until March 17, while upon completion of the excavation activity and once findings are transported to the warehouses of the Department of Antiquities, they will be able to be studied and evaluated by competent archaeologists.

It is added that the area is of archaeological interest and other prehistoric tombs of the Middle and Late Bronze Ages have been found from time to time. For this reason, it has been foreseen that the flood protection work is carried out in the continuous presence of an archaeologist.
