Throughout the excavations, ancient burial sites dotted in and around the city walls revealed a wealth of ornamentation and jewelry. The burial sites which revealed the largest amounts of artifacts were those of males, containing intricate goods such as terracotta and bronze figurines of women and animals, baskets, tools, beads, bangles, pendants and necklaces.
