Early Byzantine cemetery found in Adana

A farmer from the southeastern province of Adana’s Gökbuket village, Ahlat Gezer has unearthed a historic graveyard while plowing. 

Gezer’s tractor was suddenly stopped by an obstruction while he was plowing the field, which he rented from the Regional Directorate of Forestry. Under a concrete block in the field, he discovered a hole containing human skeletons. 

The gendarmerie officials have determined a three-chamber graveyard. Seven human skeletons have been found in the graveyard which dates back to the Roman and Byzantine period. The skeletons have been put under the care of the Adana Archaeology Museum and works have started to excavate the graveyard.
