Extensive cemetery and 5,000-year-old fortress discovered in Poland


A gigantic 5,000-year-old complex of long burial mounds and stone-lined tombs has been unearthed in Poland, after archaeologists investigated lines in crops in a field that they had seen in a satellite photograph.

Archaeologists began excavating the rural site near the town of Dębiany, about 30 miles (50 kilometers) northeast of Krakow, more than two years ago. They have now unearthed seven Neolithic tombs, as well as the remains of an early medieval fortress and a burial of two Bronze Age horses. But the full extent of the old cemetery is not yet known.
