not even dates available yet,
but I guess with todays techniques it should be possible to extract DNA from the uncontaminated bones
it should provide a nice story in a year or 2

Is there any mention somewhere as to a probable date or culture for this city? The water system seems quite sophisticated.

no, but the water pipes made me think of the Roman era

I think if they handle the bones in a professional way DNA extraction should be possible

Cley aqueduct and sophisticated pots, not later than bronze age I suppose.
