KALAR, July 18 (AKnews) – The skeletons of at least four 10-feet tall men have been found near the Kalar district, south of Kirkuk, that archeologists believe date back to thousands of years ago.
The discovery was made at Rahim Hills in Rizgari town, within the administrative territories of Kalar, where archeologists have been digging for about 6 weeks.
“We found a number of graves here. The skeleton of the men are so big and tall they are abnormal. These remains could date back to thousands of years BC” said Mohammed Ali, media official of Garmyan Archeology Department.
“We are now working on cleaning the graves. There are four of them. The height of the men according to their skeletons is about 3 meters [about 10 feet]” said Ali, “they are fascinating”
Besides the graves and the skeletons, a number of carved pottery works have been found in the same site, according to Ali. “These jars date back to about 4,500 BC”
Ali said the age of the jars has been determined by archeologists in the US, Turkey and Jordan after photos of the items were sent to them.
