A team of French researchers from the National Institute of Preventive Archaeological Research (INRAP) has discovered a 2,100-year-old necropolis in southern France, according to "Archeology."
Located near Narbo Martius, the capital of the first Roman colony in Gaul, it is believed that the cemetery houses approximately 1,000 burials where most of the burials were cremations.
