AFP - Tehran --Iranian archeologists have found the remains of a 3,000-year-old civilization in the mountains near Tehran, the state news agency IRNA reported Monday.

 

"Human skeletons together with earthenware pots were found in a number of individual graves," said Mohammad Mortezai, an official of the Iranian Archeology Organization.

 

The site was first spotted last week by a group of hikers near Boumehen, northeast of Tehran, IRNA said. The find comes one week after the discovery of a cemetery, also some 3,000-years-old, by a road crew in southern Iran.
