An international group of archaeologists found in Kenya the oldest mass burial age five thousand years. According to Science Alert, the tomb is surrounded by boulders underneath a platform with a diameter of about 30 meters.

Scientists have discovered the remains of 580 people. The researchers said that in the grave were found the skeletons of men, women, elderly and children.

Researchers believe that the burial belongs to the early African tribes of herdsmen. The same people are buried without any honors. Presumably, the members of the tribe lived in an egalitarian community, with no social stratification. Scientists stressed that this is unusual for burials, as is often the tribes were of the division into classes.

“This monument is changing our understanding of monumental structures. It demonstrates the lack of connection between monumentality and the emerging hierarchy, forcing us to look for other narratives of social change,” – said the archaeologist.

All people are buried with personal ornaments. The researchers found stone pendants, earrings and other jewelry. The excavated area of the cemetery is 120 metres. The necropolis consists of huge boulders and pillars.

Recently in Egypt have found eight million mummy dogs.
