Ancient funerary avenues were discovered in Saudi Arabia.
Archaeologists have discovered 4,500-year-old funerary avenues in Saudi Arabia. These avenues are said to be 105 miles long. Thousands of pendant shaped stone tombs have been found along the funerary avenues.
What are funerary avenues?
Funerary avenues are segments which comprises stretched pathways and tombs.
The ancient pathways are called funerary avenues because there are tombs along the pathways. To say that funerary processions took place on the avenues is uncertain. But, these long pathways make an ancient, long and strong network for sure.
Purpose of the avenues
The researchers have said that these networks of avenues have facilitated long-distance travel. The people during this time would have travelled a distance of at least 530 km from North to South.
