- 17th century BC grave excavated in Chitral village
CHITRAL: Archaeologists claimed to have excavated ancient graves and artefacts made of clay dating back to 17th century BC in remote Parwak village of Chitral district.
Members of the excavation team of Directorate of Archaeology and Museums Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Zorawar Khan, Fawad Khan and Mir Hayat told The News that the fresh finding would add to new information about the Aryan civilisation as human skeletons and pottery objects found there belonged to that ancient era.
They said the Aryan people spread from Central Asia in the shape of nomads from 1700 to 1500 BC and some of them settled in Chitral district in the bygone age. They said the human remains, pottery, artefacts and the images carved on various excavated objects shed enough light the way Aryan people lived.
