The Lost Sarcophagus

This summer, a friend of mine started working on an archaeology dig near Oklaj. There was a sarcophagus in the fields and, finally, the local museum got some funds to do a proper research.

The Sarcophagus

The sarcophagus has a typical , late Roman stone cover but it is actually dug into the rock below. The cover had some decorations that are now almost unrecognizable. The entire site is fantastic as there are remains of an old estate. Obviously, the sarcophagus belonged to the owner of the estate as something like this only a rich person was able to afford.

The entire site was dated in 4th and 5th century AD.

The Video

This year was challenging in many ways but we did A LOT of work on various projects. One one of them is moving our blog to more modern format. From now on, most of the stories will be on our YouTube channel. The video on this sarcophagus is our first video and we will be covering a lot of different subjects. Basically, just like our blog was doing since 2009.

This is the first video I have done so I expect to get better with time. And use less GoPro.
