Iranian archaeologists have recently found ruins of buildings belonging to the era of the ancient Aryans, some 3,500 years old, the Islamic Republic News Agency reported Saturday. The ruins, discovered in Dooshan-Tappeh, 73 kilometers west of Tehran, demonstrate the importance of the site which is now under excavation, said Yousuf Majeedzadeh, a prominent archaeologist.
 
He said among the ruined buildings were three castles, of which the oldest one has walls seven meters thick and sprawls an area of 2,000 square meters. The thickness of the walls shows that the building was used for public purposes, Majeedzadeh said.
 
Lots of crockery, plain and painted, and earthenware stands were found in the site, which indicate that the Medes, a branch of the Aryans, and their ancestors had lived in the area, he added.
