An over 3,000-year-old human skeleton has been found following archaeological excavations in Botoșani County, Romania. It was transferred to Iasi to be analyzed by specialists. A team consisting of archaeologists from the Botoşani County Museum, in collaboration with archaeologists and anthropologists from the Institute of Archeology in Iasi, as well as archaeologists from the University of Opava and the Silesian Museum in the Czech Republic, carried out the archaeological excavations.

Starting in 2018, we carried out surface searches in the area and during a field visit, together with colleagues from the Iasi Institute of Archeology, we identified the traces of two mounds, two large funerary monuments, rather leveled due to the agriculture and which we recently decided to study, since they deteriorate more and more every year.
