5,000-Year-Old Skeletons Found in Moroccan Cave





Archaeologists in Morocco uncovered an ancient burial ground in a cave east of the capital Rabat, digging up human skeletons dating back 5,000 years, they told AFP Friday.

It is the first time that human skeletons dating from the end of the Neolithic period to the Bronze Age have been discovered in Morocco, said Youssef Bokbot, leader of the team carrying out the digs.

The digs, which began in 2006, were in a cave 11 miles from Khemisset.
