Marble bracelets that were unearthed in Kanlıtaş tumulus near the İnönü district of the central Anatlian province of Eskişehir date back to 6,000 years ago, showing that the region was a bracelet trading area in the past.

Anadolu University Archaeology Department Associate Ali Umut Türkcan said Kanlıtaş was one of the unique mounds in western Anatolia, adding, “Excavations have revealed a structure 10-15 meters deep underground. The material used in this structure shows us traditional Anatolian architecture. We found more than three dozens of marble bracelets from the early chalcolithic period and the tools used in their production. Kanlıtaş was a marble bracelet center.”
