news icon rArchaeologists have unearthed a 3,000-year-old skeleton of a man who appears to be clutching a dagger and is posed as though he were about to thrust the weapon into something, or someone, according to a Cultural Heritage News report from Iran.

The unusual burial is the first of its kind for Iran, and possibly for the rest of the world.

Maybe he was buried that way because he was such a fierce warrior and it was a sort of honor or last wish of his? Maybe to fend of grave robbers in some way? :)

Either way, it's a pretty cool discovery.
