He said the first examinations showed that the structure was a burial chamber dating back to the Roman era.
Türktüzün added that the excavation field was a registered cultural heritage site, adding: “We are cleaning the chamber, which is full of earth and rubble. Works continue to open the outer entrance of the chamber. We have found skeletons there; it might be a family grave from the Roman era.”
When the work is finished, the field would be reorganized as an archaeology park, Türktüzün said.
