Ancient town found in Myanmar

Sunday November 28, 2010 01:38:46 PM, IANS

Yangon: Archaeologists in Myanmar have discovered parts of a religious building and a wall that circled an ancient town dating back to 100 B.C. during the Pyu era, a media report said Sunday.

The town remnants were found after an excavation in two sites in Wadee in central Myanmar during July-August this year, Xinhua reported citing the official daily New Light of Myanmar.

The new find showed that the town was established during the time of the Pyu era (100 B.C.-840 A.D.), the report said.

The archaeologists found ancient bronze sheets, bronze bells, sand slabs, charcoal and iron rivets among other items.

They also concluded that the funeral customs at the ancient town included burial of the body, or burning it and putting the ash and bones together in an urn and then burying it.
