Excavations conducted in the Hayots Dzor (Valley of Armenians) (Gurpinar in Turkish) district of Van province have led to the discovery of the grave of a Urartian woman buried with several jewels.

According to Akunq.net, the excavations in Van continue under the supervision of Head of the Chair of Archaeology of the Faculty of Literature at Hundredth Year University, Doctor, Professor Rafet Cavusoglu. The skeleton of the woman will be explored in the laboratory of anthropologists, and only after that will the reasons for her death and her exact age be disclosed.

In an interview with the Turkish TRT, Professor Cavusoglu informed that the excavations helped reaffirm how important the tradition of burying the deceased with jewels was for the Urartians and added that two bracelets, a bronze ring, earrings and a necklace made from semi-precious stones were detected on the skeleton.
