Ancient City Uncovered in Shoosh
 

 

Wednesday, 26 May 1999

TEHRAN Head of the Cultural Heritage Organization (CHO) of Shoosh city Mohammad Ali Yazdanfar, said yesterday that following excavations by the experts of the organization, an ancient city dating back to the third millennium BC has been uncovered in Shoosh. Talking to IRNA, Yazdanfar went on to say that a number of relics including enamelled and non-enamelled potteries as well as tens of other historical objects were also unearthed and that experts were conducting studies on those valuable relics.

In the vicinity of the city there is an old stone graveyard which has attracted the attention of the archeologists and has a great archeological value, the head of CHO explained. In order to conduct more archeological research and to determine the boundaries of the city, the concerned researchers have applied for a legal permit from the CHO, Yazdanfar added. The ancient city whose name has not yet been discovered is under protection of the CHO officials of Shoosh and only the archeologists are allowed to visit the city.
