The archaeologists belonging to the University of Brigham Young have been studying a cemetery in the country since past 30 years. They have managed to excavate approximately 1700 mummies under the project. But, still there is a lot of work to be done. The scientists say that a lot of mummies date back to times when the country was a province of Rome.
The scientists say that a nearby village looks too small to have produced such huge burial sites. A very tiny pyramid is located close to the cemetery. But, it was constructed at least 4500 years ago which is approximately 2 millennia before the mummies were ground buried.
