Amphorae Found In Corsica That Served As Burial Vessels – Photo

On the island of Corsica, in France, 40 ancient amphorae were discovered, which were apparently used for burials earlier. Unusual graves were found in the village of L’Ile-Rousse near the local church. This was reported on the website of the National Institute for Archaeological Research.


The grave pits with the amphorae were in the rock – some of them were equipped with a slab reuse system that could be pushed aside, and in some the amphorae were nested within one another.

At the same time, there were no burial implements or sacrificial offerings next to the amphorae. The human remains were found in a condition that allows them to be dated, but they will have to be taken out very carefully, the scientists noted.
