LTK, Ministry of Ancient Antiquities - Recent archaeological finds in the semi-arid hill country on LTK has fostered a commitment for an upgraded preservation policy and increased funding to the Burial Sink Museum. As seen in this artists rendition of the only complete and undisturbed Burial Sink found to date, bodies of the deceased are carefully prepared and wrapped with indigenous animal hide - always a single skin, fur side in. Carefully laid within a half meter deep depression, called a sink, most burial sites contain a family group, usually less than three generations. For the amateur archaeologist or those with a keen interest in ancient history and anthropology, consider making your next visit to LTK as a "dig team volunteer".
