Excavation Operations Launched on ancient Hill in Iran

 

 

Thursday, 10 June 1999


SHAHR-E REYY, Tehran Iranian archeologists launched excavation operations on the ancient hill of `Meel', known as `Rey Fire Temple' on Varamin road, southwest of Tehran, Tuesday. Head of the team Ms. Zarrintaj Sheibani said that current excavations, third in the past 80 years, will reveal secrets of the hill for archeologists. She said the `Meel' protected zone covers an area of two hectares of land, adding that plaster works discovered during excavations indicate a rich civilization and architecture of its time.

Sheibani regretted that no archeological map had remained from previous archaelogical teams and thus, she added, all excavation operations should be launched from the very beginning. However, she predicted that remarkable results will be achieved in operations within the next month. The ancient `Meel' which is situated in the township of Reyy, 10 km southwest of Tehran, is a protected historical site which dates back to some 2500 years ago.
