Sunday, 07 February 1999

SHAHR-E REYY, Remains of pottery kilns belonging to the Islamic era have been unearthed during digging operations by the water and sewage organization in Shahr-e Reyy, south of the capital city Tehran. Thousands of pieces of brick and clay works dating back to the past millennium, have been discovered from an underground depth of 4 meters. In addition, remains of turquoise glasswares have also been discovered during the operations but the exact date of the objects is not known yet.

In the course of the digging operations in the area about 7 years ago, a pottery kiln was unearthed with a clay pot filled with gold coins. Experts of the Cultural Heritage Organization are expected to launch comprehensive studies in the area as of next week. The experts have so far made no official statement concerning the recent findings.
