Officials in Japan's Fukuoka Prefecture report uncovering the remains of ancient housing believed to be 3,200 years old in the village of Hisayama.

The remains were found along what used to be a riverbank.

Archaeologists reported unearthing remains of several houses at the site; eight homes from the late Jomon Period of about 3,200 years ago, as well as a pit house from the early Yayoi Period, about the third century B.C., the Kyodo News Service reported.
