The grave was discovered in the late summer of 2011. The 42-square-metre tomb is 1.1 metres deep.
“With the help of anthropological methods, the victims’ ages, wounds, causes of death and illnesses will be determined,” Friederich added.
The archaeologist said it would take six experts a year to completely unearth the tomb. She said it is thought the dead were buried without clothing, weapons or other personal effects.
