Researchers have excavated an intact camel skeleton that belongs to the age of the Ottoman Empire. The skeleton was retrieved from a garbage pile within a basement in Austria. The animal was seven years old. It was male and it died around the year 1643. The Ottoman Empire was a Sunni Islamic state that was established in the modern-day Turkey. It dates back to 1299. It was commanded by Osman the first. It invaded the Balkans between 1362 and 1389 and established there a growing empire. In 1453 the empire, being commanded by Mehmed the second, invaded Constantinople and expanded the Byzatine Empire.
The animal was perhaps imported to the empire as the animal was very rare for the area.
