The tomb was discovered among a number of Prehistoric settlement remains, including remains of houses and other graves, which date back to 5500-4800 BC. Construction work at the site has been suspended until in mid-September so archaeologists can carry out their work. The construction should resume at the end of the summer unless another important find is made, added the statement.
