Artifacts found in a cave in Nepal have been dated back to the Stone Age, making them the oldest artifacts ever found in the country.

There is an empty space about 20 feet wide covered by stones a couple of meters below the ground level at the site. Locals from neighboring villages are starting to crowd around the site after the discovery, reports Stone Pages.com.

“We have started worshipping the site because we believe it’s sacred,” said a local.

Tulsi Sharma, of Parbat, revealed that director general of DoA Bishnu Raj Karki has informed that the artifacts found in the cave probably date back to the Stone Age.

“They have said the artifacts could be thousands of years old. Another team of specialists is coming here for excavation to launch further investigation,” added Sharma.

Sharma said the DoA suggested the District Administration Office to protect the site saying that the artifacts could be the oldest found through excavation in Nepal till now.
